My research is focused on investigating the nature of normativity. In other words, I'm interested in what we ought to do and why. Where do moral demands come from? What about practical reasons, more generally? What is the source of other norms, like requirements of epistemic rationality, and why do they have authority over us?

I am currently an Assistant Professor/Faculty Fellow at New York University's Center for Bioethics

I received my PhD from NYU's Department of Philosophy in 2018.

I spent the fall semester 2016 as a visiting student at the École Normale Supérieure and the affiliated Institut Jean Nicod in Paris, France. Before coming to NYU, I earned a B.A. in Philosophy from Yale University.
