I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at UC San Diego. Before my current appointment, I held a three-year position as the Harold T. Shapiro Postdoctoral Research Associate in Bioethics at the Princeton University Center for Human Values.
I specialize in theoretical and applied ethics, moral psychology, philosophy of emotion and agency. Broadly speaking, I am interested in puzzles at the intersection of ethics and human emotion. Most of my recent work concerns the nature and ethics of emotional attachment.
In the 2018-19 academic year, I will teach a graduate seminar on the philosophy of attachment and two upper-division undergraduate courses in ethics. In recent years, I taught ethics, philosophy of law, philosophy of emotion, and Asian philosophy.
