Greetings! I am a visiting lecturer in the Department of Philosophy and Religion at Northeastern University and an instructor for the Clemente Course in the Humanities. I received my Ph.D in philosophy from Boston University in 2019.
My research centers on the nature of accountability and its connection to salient moral attitudes, such as love, self-love, and remorse. While the bulk of my work investigates these topics in an early modern context, I am interested in how these discussions can inform work in contemporary moral psychology. Much of my research is also dedicated to the writings of underrepresented figures in the early modern period and concerned with expanding our sense of which texts qualify as properly philosophical. These concerns have recently led me to explore accountability in the Native American tradition.
Outside of philosophy, I spend time listening to and writing about music, attending concerts, baking, watching movies, and connecting with friends and loved ones. I’m a proud Minnesota native and enrolled member of the Choctaw Nation.
