I am a CUNY Baccalaureate for Unique and Individualized Studies (CUNY BA) Advising 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. 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).
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.
