Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Core Faculty at the Center for Biomedical Ethics and Society at Vanderbilt University Medical Center
From 2022-2023, I was a research fellow at the Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics at the University of Oxford. From 2020-2022, I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Bioethics at the National Institutes of Health. Before that, I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Arizona, under the supervision of Juan Comesaña. I work primarily in practical ethics, especially in bioethics. My research in bioethics focuses on the use of nudges in clinical and research settings, and on understanding and reforming bioethical practice and consultation. I am also interested in the ethics, strategy, and psychology of veganism. Outside of practical ethics, I work on metaethical questions about the nature of moral judgment and motivation.
