Academic Bio

I'm a 5th-year PhD student in philosophy at MIT. In July 2019, I will become a Lecturer (assistant professor) at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, where I’ll be teaching courses on moral theory and human rights.

My dissertation, What We Owe to Ourselves, develops a Self-Other Symmetric view of rights and supererogation. Our rights have two sides: they forbid others from imposing on us for the collective good, but make self-sacrifice fabulously optional.

My committee: Kieran Setiya & Tamar Schapiro (co-chairs), Caspar Hare.
