I received my Ph.D. in Philosophy at Emory University in 2016 and am a Mellon Teaching Fellow at Dillard University for 2016-17.

My research revolves around issues at the intersection of Normative and Applied Ethics (esp. Bioethics), 19th & 20th c. Continental Philosophy (esp. Phenomenology), and Philosophy of Disability. I am in the process of revising my dissertation, “The Life Worth Living: Ethics and the Experiences of Disability,” into book form. Other interests include History of Philosophy, Medical Humanities, Feminist Philosophy, and Social and Political Philosophy. My research has appeared or is forthcoming in Hypatia, the American Journal of Bioethics Neuroscience, Chiasmi International, the APA Newsletter on Philosophy and Medicine, and the Jahrbuch fur Literatur und Medizin.
