I am a Postdoctoral Associate and Lecturer in the Humanities program at Yale, and I received my PhD in Philosophy from the University of Chicago in 2017.
I work on issues in moral psychology and ethics—I’m especially interested in self-knowledge and self-opacity, and the role of finitude for thinking about ethics and agency. I also have research and teaching interests in aesthetics, 19th and 20th Century European philosophy, feminist philosophy, and Kant’s practical philosophy.
I write art criticism for literary review journals and magazines.
