I am currently a PhD student in the philosophy department at the City University of New York Graduate Center. I completed my BA in philosophy and English at the University of Rochester in 2011, and I earned my MA in philosophy at Brandeis University in 2013.
I work as a teaching fellow and adjunct instructor at Queens College and Baruch College.
My work focuses on the moral and psychological consequences of offensive language.
When I'm not reading, writing, or teaching, I volunteer as a sexual assault and violence intervention advocate for Mt. Sinai's SAVI program, a fantastic organization committed to supporting survivors in their times of need.
Updates and upcoming events
In March I presented a paper on slurs and associations at the 2017 meeting for Southern Society for Philosophy and Psychology.
During April I traveled to Bucknell University to speak at a conference on the ethics and aesthetics of stand-up comedy.
I'll be presenting a work from a collaboration with Steven Young and Eric Mandelbaum at the European Association for Social Psychology's meeting in Granada over the summer.
