I am an assistant professor of philosophy at Daemen College. I primarily teach courses in medical ethics and our core curriculum. I’m developing courses in medical humanities and the philosophy of gender and sexuality.
I completed my MA in philosophy at Arizona State University and then went on to finish my PhD in philosophy at Boston University. My dissertation was on how social identities affect our obligation to resist oppression. I’ve continued to publish on questions about social identities and oppression while also working on how marginalized communities access healthcare resources.
When I’m not doing philosophy, I’m swimming, (clumsily) running, trying new recipes, and watching embarrassingly bad monster movies.
