I'm a 3rd year PhD student in Philosophy at the University of Michigan, where I’m advised by Brian Weatherson & Sarah Moss. Before that, I was an undergraduate at Reed College in Portland, OR. I’m from Long Island, NY. In Fall 2019, I’ll be a visiting graduate student at NYU and USC.

My primary interests lie in epistemology, ethics, and social philosophy (and their various intersections). My current research is largely focused on the nature of epistemic norms and how they relate to other norms, such as norms of inquiry and practical norms. I also have a few side projects on consent and in particular what role it should play in sexual ethics.

My current hobbies include hot yoga & cycling, researching workflows, and trying new vegan restaurants 🌱.

I used to translate texts from French to English. I've translated articles by Michel Foucault, Georges Didi-Huberman, Hélé Béji, and Jacques Rancière, some for publication
