I am a graduate student in philosophy at Princeton. I joined the program in 2012 after graduating from the College of William & Mary with a B.A. in philosophy and psychology. My work lies at the intersection of metaethics, ethics, and moral psychology, but I also have related interests in epistemology, philosophy of mind, and political philosophy. In my dissertation, I argue that empathy has a crucial role to play in moral inquiry, and that appreciating this can help us make progress on debates about the strength of our obligations to reduce animal suffering and extreme poverty. You can find my dissertation summary here. I moonlight as a member of the Princeton Social Neuroscience Lab.
