Welcome

I am a Ph.D. student in Philosophy and Education at Teachers College, Columbia University working under the advisement of Dr. Megan Laverty. My dissertation provides an account of moral understanding that is perceptual and linguistic and shows how education can cultivate deeper moral understanding. Most recently, I contributed a chapter to The Cambridge Handbook of Democratic Education (2023) on democratic education, critical theory, and moral perception. I have been published in Educational Theory, the Journal of Philosophy and Education, and on_education, and I currently serve on the review board of Educational Theory. Beginning in Fall 2024, I will be working as a Term Associate Professor in the Education Department at Barnard College, Columbia University.

In my spare time, I enjoy film photography and rock climbing.
