My main academic interests include ethics, feminist philosophy, political philosophy, and gender & sexuality. Within philosophy I teach courses in value theory broadly-speaking, as well as a number of minor and major requirements within women's and gender studies. My present and past research projects have focused on abortion, pregnancy loss, reproductive ethics, queer families, reproductive technology, ethical progress, ethical objectivity, Kantian respect, sports, and theories of feminism.

I have been at Geneseo since 2014. Prior to that, I was an Instructor at Bowling Green State University and a Postdoc at the Center for Ethics in Public Life and Ford School of Public Policy at the University of Michigan. Before that, I earned my Ph.D. in Philosophy at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 2010 with a dissertation that offered an account of ethical progress, deliberation, and objectivity in terms of resolving problems. In addition, at Michigan I also worked with the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching as a Graduate Teaching Consultant and I continue to be interested in faculty development.

As an undergraduate I attended Lafayette College where I majored in philosophy and women's studies. At Lafayette I wrote my senior thesis on egalitarianism and worked on an oral history project with the College Archives documenting Lafayette's transition to coeducation.
