I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Philosophy Department at the University of Michigan.  I have a PhD in philosophy from the University of Arizona, where I defended a dissertation titled "Legitimacy and Fairness."  I work in political, legal, and moral philosophy, and especially on state legitimacy, special obligations, and social morality.  My work has been published in Philosophy & Public Affairs, Ratio, and Journal of Moral Philosophy.

Here's a write-up and podcast discussion about my paper on moral grandstanding at the Huffington Post.  And here's Tamler Sommers and David Pizarro discussing the paper on an episode of Very Bad Wizards.
