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 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. These range from inquiries into what makes for a good life to issues relating to moral motivation. When I am not pursuing my research interests or my passion for teaching, I enjoy spending time with friends, family, and my cat Panda.
