I am a senior lecturer in the Department of Philosophy at The Ohio State University and a lecturer in the School of Public Policy at the Georgia Institute of Technology. I obtained my Ph.D. in philosophy from Ohio State in August 2023.

My current research is focused on issues in the ethics of artificial intelligence (AI), and I am especially interested in topics in the area of machine ethics. The central questions that guide my research are to what extent AI systems could be endowed with ethical capacities, which design approaches are the most appropriate for developing ethical AI, and whether it's a good idea in the first place for us to attempt to develop ethical AI! I also have research interests in meta- and normative ethics, which you can read more about here.

I have taught (or been a TA for) a large variety of philosophy classes, and I feel incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn about so many different parts of philosophy in the course of doing so. Teaching philosophy, for me, is one of the most fulfilling parts of being an academic philosopher, as there's nothing quite like the experience of students sharing in the wonder of grappling with a deep and difficult philosophical question.
