I am an Assistant Professor in Philosophy at Yale-NUS College, Singapore.

I have research interests ranging across ethics, moral psychology, feminist and social philosophy, and critical philosophy of race. My work revolves around issues of moral responsibility and structural injustice, and I have also written on topics such as academic precarity and racial fetish. I co-founded the Yale-NUS Gender Research Cluster, and I am a member of the APA Task Forces on Diversity and Inclusion as well as the Good Practices Guide

From 2015 to 2016 I was a Visiting Junior Research Fellow at Newnham College, Cambridge. In 2015, I received my PhD in Philosophy from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. There, I was a founder of the Michigan chapter of the Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) network and the Mind and Moral Psychology (MMP) Working Group. I also helped found the Philosophy department outreach program, which co-sponsors the Michigan High School Ethics Bowl in partnership with A2ethics.org. From 2013 to 2015 I served as Vice-President and President of the Graduate Employees' Organization (GEO). I graduated from Washington and Lee University, class of 2009, with degrees in Philosophy and Physics.
