I completed my PhD in Philosophy at Purdue University in 2016. Matthias Steup directed my dissertation, with Mike Bergmann, Rod Bertolet, Paul Draper, and Baron Reed also serving on my committee. When not doing philosophy, I passed my time at Purdue acting in local theater, volunteering at the Lafayette Crisis Center, and hanging out with friends at local bars, restaurants, and parks.
I earned my JD from Harvard Law School in 2019. During my time at Harvard, I served as a teaching assistant for the first year legal research and writing program as part of the Board of Student Advisers, managed the blog for the Harvard Law & Policy Review, and acted in the HLS Parody.
During my time at Harvard, I was twice awarded a Harvard Law Summer Academic Fellowship, and during my third year of law school I was a student fellow at the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics.
I’m currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy and the Linguistic Program at Wayne State University in Detroit. (For information on WSU’s graduate programs in philosophy see here and here.) Prior to coming to Wayne State, I worked as an attorney in the Immigration Practice Group at Harter Secrest & Emery LLP.
