I’m the Program Manager for the Metric Geometry & Gerrymandering Group and the Science, Technology, and Society Program at Tufts University just outside of Boston, Massachusetts. As a Program Manager, I’m involved with strategic planning, curriculum design, and research efforts in MGGG and STS.
Before coming to Tufts, I received my PhD from the Department of Philosophy at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. At the same time I served as a graduate teaching fellow at the Eberly Center for Teaching Excellence.
My research focuses on ethical questions surrounding democratic voting. In particular, I’m interested in the question of whether voters in democratic societies have a duty to vote a particular way, or consult particular kinds of motivations or information when they make their vote choice. You can read about all of my research projects in greater detail on my research page.
At Carnegie Mellon, I taught several courses related to my research interests. I take great joy in teaching political theory and ethics to undergraduates. On my teaching page, you can view my teaching portfolio, which includes a list of courses taught, my course syllabi, statement on teaching philosophy, and course reviews.
