About

IMG_0319I’m a PhD candidate in the Philosophy department at the University of Chicago.
I work on issues in moral psychology and moral philosophy—including self-knowledge and self-opacity, moral responsibility, and moral repair. I have research and teaching interests in Kant’s practical philosophy, aesthetics, and 19th and 20th Century European philosophy. For 2015-17 I am the Diversity Coordinator for the Philosophy department. I’m extremely excited to be joining Yale University in Fall 2017 as a PostDoctoral Associate and Lecturer.

I also write art criticism for literary review journals and magazines.
(And this is Ivan, who is not my cat).
