Teaching

My teaching interests are diverse, spanning normative and applied ethics, the history of philosophy, continental philosophy, feminist philosophy, social and political philosophy, applied epistemology, critical philosophy of race, disability studies, and medical humanities. Accessibility and universal design are cornerstones of my pedagogy, and I work to make my classes pluralist in both letter and spirit. Among other projects, I’m currently developing the first “Philosophy of Disability” and “Intro to Phenomenology” courses offered at UMass Lowell.

Here are some of the courses I’ve taught or will soon teach:

  • Bioethics and Genetics Research (UMass Lowell)
