I’m a lecturer in the philosophy department at the University of Colorado, Boulder and a recent graduate of the PhD program in philosophy at Boston University (May 2020). 

My research is in social and political philosophy and critical philosophy of race, particularly issues relating to political responsibility, group-based injustice, and the moral significance of the past. My dissertation – completed under the supervision of Ann E. Cudd, David Lyons and Juliet Floyd – articulates a new argumentative approach to the political problem of black reparations in the United States that finds new work for the normative principle of fair play. 

I’m also interested in feminist philosophy, the philosophy of science – particularly of the evolutionary and human sciences – and in pragmatism and the American philosophical tradition more broadly.
