About Me

I'm a Postgraduate Research Associate in the Philosophy Department at Princeton University, where I received my PhD. I am currently teaching a metaethics course  on the topic of Explaining Values.

I work primarily in ethics, political philosophy, and their history, where I investigate the good life and the social and political conditions that enable people to live good lives. If you want to know more, check out the other pages.

Outside of work, I try to put my philosophy into practice in my own life. Some recent good life-constituting interests include powerlifting and lots of time with loved ones. Other interests have included tabletop games, film, tango, Tai Chi, cooking, whiskey, piano, guitar, concerts, and video games.
