Biography

I am a Postgraduate Research Associate in the Department of Philosophy at Princeton University, where I completed my PhD in January 2018. Beginning fall 2018, I will be Assistant Professor/Faculty Fellow in the Center for Bioethics at New York University. My work lies at the intersection of ethics, metaethics, and moral psychology. In my dissertation, I argued 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.
