I'm currently a lecturer at Boston University, where I've been teaching since 2015. I teach a wide range of subjects in both historical and contemporary philosophy, including a number of interdisciplinary humanities courses bridging ethical theory, public health policy, and social and political thought, including Philosophy of Gender and Sexuality, Environmental Philosophy, and Biomedical Ethics, among others.

If you're thinking about taking a course with me, you should know that my approach to teaching is motivated by the idea that learning is, at its best, a social enterprise. To that end, class time will emphasize collaborative problem solving, not passive information transmission. We'll all come to class to practice our understanding of the material, not to receive it.
