About

I’m currently a postdoctoral research fellow in philosophy at Emory University and a lecturer in the philosophy department at the University of Pennsylvania, where I teach undergraduate courses in the College of Liberal and Professional Studies. I received my Ph.D. in philosophy from Emory University in May 2020, and in recent years I have taught at Emory and Georgia Tech.

My current research stands at the intersection of ancient Greek philosophy, ethics, and moral psychology. At Emory, I am a part of a team of researchers investigating the phenomenon of moral injury. Outside of that, I am working on a research project that aims to explain the moral psychology of hope in ancient Greek philosophy, especially Plato and Aristotle. I also have interests in virtue ethics, Buddhist philosophy, ancient Greek literature, the philosophy of science, and early modern European philosophy.

For the academic year 2018-19, I was a Mellon Graduate Teaching Fellow at Agnes Scott College. Before that, I served as a faculty member of the Emory-Tibet Science Initiative (ETSI). In the spring of 2020, I assisted in the development of Georgia Tech’s Center for Ethics and Technology by organizing talks and communicating the value of the Center to institutional stakeholders.
