I am an assistant professor in the Department of Politics and University Center for Human Values, and associated faculty in the Department of Philosophy, at Princeton University. From Jan 2020-Dec 2021, I am also a research fellow in the Dianoia Institute of Philosophy at Australian Catholic University, in Melbourne, where I (would have spent) the months of June-July (were it not for COVID-19).
Starting September 2021, I will be an assistant professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Michigan. But I will spend the academic year 2021-22 as a residential fellow at Harvard University's Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics, working on finishing my book (Rewriting Rights; more info here!)

From September 2017-July 2019, I was a postdoctoral research fellow in the School of Philosophy at Australian National University. My work there focused on the moral significance of risk, as part of an Australian Research Council (ARC) project with Seth Lazar, Lara Buchak, Alan Hajek, Philip Pettit, Frank Jackson, and Katie Steele.
Before that, I completed my Ph.D. in political philosophy at the University of Southern California (2017), working primarily with Jonathan Quong, Robin Jeshion, and Mark Schroeder.
Before that, I completed an M.A. in philosophy at Northern Illinois University (2012), as well as bachelor's degrees in fine arts (2010) and philosophy (2009) at Biola University.
In my spare time, I paint. I've started a series of portraits of philosophers, painting various famous philosophers in style that highlights themes central to the philosopher's work. You can see those paintings here.
