About Me


I am an Assistant Professor in the Philosophy Department at Rhode Island College and the director of SIPP, Brown University‚Äôs Summer Immersion Program in Philosophy. I work on political philosophy and ethics; I also have related interests in feminist philosophy, philosophy of law, and the history of ethics and political philosophy.

Prior to coming to RIC, I taught in the Philosophy, Politics, and Economics Program at UNC Chapel Hill, and before that I received my doctorate from UCSD in October 2015. Before my PhD, I grew up in Oregon, received a BA in philosophy and government from Claremont McKenna College, and did a brief stint at a software company in the Midwest. I also got to talk Rawls with Alex Trebek on the May 25, 2015 episode of Jeopardy!
