Starting in fall 2017 I will be a Junior Faculty Fellow in the Georgetown Institute for the Study of Markets and Ethics at the McDonough School of Business. From 2015-17 I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow and Lecturer in the Philosophy Department at the University of Michigan. Before that I did my graduate work in the Philosophy Department at the University of Arizona.

I work in political, legal, and moral philosophy, and especially on state legitimacy, special obligations, and social morality. My work has been published (or is forthcoming) in Philosophy & Public Affairs, Legal Theory, Pacific Philosophical QuarterlyRatio, and Journal of Moral Philosophy.

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