I am a PhD candidate in the Philosophy Department at Brown University. In the current academic year, I am in residence as a Sawyier Predoctoral Teaching Fellow at Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago. My main interests lie in ethics and moral psychology.  Further fields of interests include Non-Western ethics, Kant's practical philosophy and the history of modern philosophy in general. My research so far has focused on questions concerning how we should live. In particular I have worked on the nature of well-being, and the role of emotions in morality and motivation. When I am not pursuing my research interests or my passion for teaching, I enjoy spending time with these two.
