I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Philosophy at the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate Center focusing on applied ethics (especially bioethics), ethics, and moral psychology. I also have interests in philosophy of psychiatry and feminist philosophy. This semester, I am teaching undergraduate students in the department of environmental studies at NYU and the philosophy department at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and have taught widely throughout New York City for the better part of the last decade (see Teaching page for more information). I am also currently an Ethics Fellow at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) and an Associate Fellow 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.
