About

I’m a Philosophy Phd Candidate at Indiana University – Bloomington, where I work in normative epistemology, with an emphasis on feminist philosophy and philosophy of race. Most of my research centers on our interpersonal obligations to one another, especially under unjust social conditions. In my dissertation, I argue that non-group members have both an epistemic and moral duty to defer to marginalized testifiers when they testify about the identity-based harms that they have experienced. I also hold secondary interests in the philosophy of beneficence with an emphasis on mutual aid, solidarity, and care ethics. In addition to my philosophical interests, I have also published work on college teaching, with a focus on curricular design and inclusive pedagogy.
