Welcome! I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the McCoy Family Center for Ethics in Society at Stanford University. I specialize in political philosophy, ethical theory, and applied ethics. Amongst other venues, my work has been published in the Australasian Journal of Philosophy and The Monist.

At the moment my research focuses on topics at the intersection of justice and public policy. I also enjoy thinking about a wide range of philosophical problems ranging from abortion to food aesthetics.

Before I came to Stanford I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Virginia and the B.Phil. at the University of Oxford. When I am not doing philosophy, I cook, hike, and listen to classical music.
