Academic Bio

I'm a Lecturer (assistant professor) at Monash University, where I teach moral philosophy. Before Monash, I did my BA at UT Austin and my 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 it would be wrong to impose it on a non-consenting other.

Besides ethics, I write about epistemology, metaphysics, and moral psychology. My passion outside academia is music, especially when it’s got dreamy guitars and funky drums.
