I joined the Princeton Philosophy Department in 2014 after receiving my B.A. (summa cum laude) from Columbia in 2012. I write predominantly in ethics, and secondarily in meta-ethics, normative epistemology, and social philosophy.
My dissertation focuses on foundational questions in the normativity of blame. I investigate the structure of blame as a kind of judgment-sensitive attitude (on analogy to judgment-sensitive attitudes like belief, intention, and fear), and I offer a contractualist account of blame's appropriateness conditions that has implications for blameworthiness, desert, punishment, and the 'wrong kind of reasons' problem. Outside of my dissertation, I work on the philosophy of mental illness, which I argue is better understood as disability than disease.
I also have a vested interest in corgis (esp. corgis herding sheep).
