I teach in the Department of Philosophy at The University of Chicago, where I’m Assistant Instructional Professor and Assistant Director of Undergraduate Studies. My areas of specialization include political philosophy, ethics, philosophy of race, and feminist philosophy. My current research focuses on topics such as masculinity, the moral justifiability of capital income, and reparations for historical injustice. I also have strong interests in the philosophy of economics.
Much of my research has to do with egalitarian relationships—why they’re important, and what exactly they look like in specific practical contexts. Read more about my academic work here.
In addition to my academic research, I also frequently write for non-academic publications on political topics. Some of my non-academic writing has appeared recently in Slate, Jacobin, Los Angeles Review of Books, Business Insider and In These Times. One of my recent articles was featured in a piece at the New York Times.
I’m committed to the idea that political philosophy isn’t simply an academic matter, but a project oriented toward making the world a better place. Thus, I am involved in a variety of organizing initiatives in Chicago aimed at upending inequality and promoting justice.
