I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Philosophy and Linguistics at MIT. Next year I'll be a Bersoff Faculty Fellow in the Department of Philosophy at NYU, after which I'll start an assistant professorship at the University of Pennsylvania.
My research is in ethics, the philosophy of action, and bioethics. I am especially interested in questions about how we can permissibly influence other people's behavior and where our rights against other people's influence come from.
Alongside my research, I've done a variety of work in ethics pedagogy for STEM students. Most recently, I was an Ethics Pedagogy Fellow at Harvard's Edmond & Lily Safra Center for Ethics and a SERC Scholar at MIT's College of Computing. Previously, I served as co-director of the Experiential Ethics program at MIT and was a graduate teaching fellow for the Embedded EthiCS program at Harvard.
Before starting at MIT, I was a pre-doctoral fellow in the Clinical Center Department of Bioethics at the National Institutes of Health and completed my undergraduate degree at Wellesley College in philosophy and biology.
Here's how I pronounce my name.
