I’m the Program Director for ThinkerAnalytix, an education non-profit that works with teachers to develop their students' critical thinking skills through a method called argument mapping, a visual way of representing the relationships between reasons and claims in an argument. During the 2019-2020 academic year I'll also be a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy at Wheaton College (MA). Before working at TA I was a Program Manager in the MGGG Redistricting Lab at the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civics Life at Tufts University.
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.
