I'm a Lecturer (assistant professor) in philosophy at Monash University, where I am on the Board of Directors for the program in Philosophy, Politics and Economics. Before that, I got my BA at UT Austin and PhD at MIT.
My dissertation, What We Owe to Ourselves, argues that moral rights are Self-Other Symmetric.
The basic idea: we wrong ourselves by doing what would wrong a consenting other, and we have the right not to make a sacrifice when we it would be wrong to impose it on someone else against their will.
