Academic Bio

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.

Outside of academia, my big passion is music. Especially when it has dreamy guitars or fun(ky) drums.
