I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Washington and Lee University. My research is in ethics, philosophy of action, and aesthetics. Before joining the philosophy department at W&L, I received my PhD from the University of Michigan in 2022 and my BA from Wellesley College in 2017. I was born and raised in Vancouver, BC.
My research explores the value of integrity. In my dissertation, I argued that agents who fail to live up to the requirements of their commitments experience inner conflicts that hinder their ability to be self-governing. My current research considers various ways that integrity bears on our thinking about love, temporally extended agency, and consent. Many of my side projects are in aesthetics. I am especially interested in the way we think and write about art. You can read more about my ongoing research projects here.
I am committed to addressing structural barriers preventing minoritized philosophers from fully participating in the discipline. I run the Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) chapter at W&L and currently serve on MAP International's Board of Trustees. If there is anything I can do to support your organizing efforts, please reach out to me :)
