I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy (tenure-track) at Boston University.
My research is primarily in naturalistic ethics. I think about how fundamental
moral questions can be illuminated by empirical research in cognitive science
and evolutionary theory. I am also interested in feminism, philosophy of race,
and their relationship to urgent issues of social injustice in the 21st century.
I completed a Ph.D. in Philosophy in 2013 at the University of Arizona, where I wrote a dissertation on moral thought under the supervision of Shaun Nichols.
After my Ph.D., I was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Michigan and
then later at the University of Toronto. During graduate school, I spent a year as
a visiting fellow at Harvard University and Joshua Greene's Moral Cognition Lab.
I am a member of the interdisciplinary Moral Psychology Research Group.
