About

I am currently Assistant Professor in the Department of Legal Studies and Business Ethics in the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. I am also an associated faculty member in the Department of Philosophy at Penn, and an affiliated faculty member of the Institute for Law and Philosophy at the Penn Law School.

Before coming to Penn, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the McCoy Center for Ethics in Society at Stanford University

I received my Ph.D from the Philosophy Department at the University of California-Berkeley in 2012.

My primary interests are in moral and political philosophy. In particular, I am interested in questions about the demandingness of morality, individual obligations of justice, the relationship between ideal and non-ideal theory, and ethical issues arising with regard to climate change. I am also interested in the notion of collective obligations, and the connection between such obligations and individual obligations, as well as in methodological issues in ethics, particularly the appropriate role of appeals to intuitions.
