I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Virginia Tech. Before coming to Virginia Tech, I was an Assistant Professor/Faculty Fellow at the NYU Center for Bioethics. 

 

I completed my Ph.D. in Philosophy at UNC Chapel Hill. I work primarily in normative ethics, bioethics, feminist philosophy, and moral psychology. My current philosophical research centers on the ethics of belief, especially in connection with self-knowledge and self-deception. I am also interested in 'rationally unjustifiable' emotions like agent-regret and survivor's guilt.

 

Within bioethics, I am interested in how medical crises have the power to transform self-conceptions and familial relationships. Right now, I'm trying to figure out we ought to be allowed to request physician-assisted death on behalf of incapacitated, terminally ill family members.
