About Me

As of Fall 2023, I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Bioethics at the National Institutes of Health. I completed my Ph.D. in philosophy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Spring 2023.

My research focuses on ethical issues with the use of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) in development economics and policy evaluation. To analyze these issues, I draw on concepts from bioethics and contemporary debates in moral & political philosophy. I also have research interests in the social contract tradition and economic methodology, especially their intersection.


As a philosophy instructor, my mission is always to instill in students the confidence to reason about the questions that matter most. I believe all students can develop the critical thinking skills that philosophical thinking demands, and that these skills are necessary for becoming self-governing persons capable of deliberating collectively with others.
