I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Philosophy at the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate Center focusing on ethics, applied ethics (especially bioethics), and moral psychology. I also have interests in philosophy of psychiatry and feminist philosophy. Additionally, I teach undergraduate students in the philosophy department at Hunter College, and have taught widely throughout New York City (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 – as well as Associate Fellow – at the GE2P2 Global Foundation. In Fall 2020, I will serve as a Graduate Assistant for the “Be Better, Together” Japanese Studies Curriculum Development and Building Bridges across CUNY Project.
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.
