I am Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Brooklyn College, City University of New York.  My main areas of research are moral and political philosophy, moral psychology, and experimental philosophy.  I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Australian National University, and I received my Ph.D. from Yale University in 2015.

I am also a co-organizer of the Group for Empirical Approaches to Morality and Society (G.E.M.S.).
