I'm a PhD candidate in philosophy at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. I specialize in epistemology and ethics.
Two research projects have grown out of my dissertation, one which focuses on how we should understand and respond to higher-order evidence, and one which locates conceptual connections between human evolution and key issues in epistemology, ethics, and metaethics.
I'm also deeply committed to my teaching, which is built around principles of inclusiveness, engagement, and unconditional positive regard for students. I greatly enjoy teaching introductory classes, particularly in ethics.
