I am a CUNY Baccalaureate for Unique and Individualized Studies (CUNY BA) Fellow and Ph.D. candidate in Philosophy at the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate Center, focusing on applied ethics (especially bioethics), moral psychology, and social and political philosophy. I also have interests in philosophy of psychiatry and feminist philosophy. Additionally, I teach undergraduate students in the philosophy department at NYU, and have taught widely throughout the CUNY system (see Teaching page for more information). I am also currently an Ethics Fellow at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) and a member of the inaugural cohort of the Bioethics in Biopharma Fellows Program at the GE2P2 Global Foundation.
Previously, I attended Columbia University as a John Jay Scholar, majoring in Philosophy and concentrating in Political Science. I graduated magna cum laude with departmental honors in Philosophy, where my thesis addressed the paradox of fatalism and self-creation in Nietzsche and its implications for Nietzschean exceptionalism.
