Screen-Shot-2020-10-22-at-10.53.22-PM-1I am a philosopher and poet. I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Centre for Ethics at University of Toronto.

In a recent series of papers, I develop a view of responsibility motivated by the ways in which we hold so-called “marginal agents” (e.g., children, people with addiction) responsible in ordinary life. I am also interested in the impact of trauma on responsibility and forgiveness.

I was previously a Lecturer in the Brandeis University Philosophy Department. Before that, I was a Postdoctoral Scholar at The Ohio State University College of Public Health/the Center for Bioethics at OSU Medical Center. My research at OSU was part of a project called Regulating Addiction: Paternalism, Stigma, and Health Disparities.

I received my PhD from UNC – Chapel Hill and was a recipient of a Charlotte W. Newcombe Dissertation Completion Fellowship for 2018-19. Before coming to UNC, I received a BA in philosophy and psychology from Simmons College, and an MA in philosophy from Tufts
