I’m a fourth year PhD student in philosophy at Boston University. I work primarily in social and political philosophy, particularly on the issues of political obligation and reparations. I’m currently at work on a dissertation under the supervision of Ann E. Cudd, David Lyons and Juliet Floyd, in which I articulate a new dialectical approach to the issue of black reparations in the United States that appeals to the principle of fair play. 

I’m also interested in the philosophy of science, particularly of the evolutionary and human sciences, and in pragmatism and the American philosophical tradition more broadly. I’ve recently become convinced that John Dewey is one of the most insightful and underappreciated philosophers since Darwin.
