I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy and a member of the Advisory Faculty for Environmental Studies at Wellesley College. I completed my PhD in Philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley, and I was an undergraduate at Yale, where I majored in Philosophy and English (with a Writing Concentration).

My primary research interests concern the ethics, politics, and aesthetics of cultural heritage, particularly with respect to art and the environment. For details, please see links at the top.
