I'm an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Carnegie Mellon University. I'm also the Associate Director of CMU's Center for Ethics & Policy and an Affiliate Faculty Member at the University of Pittsburgh's Center for Bioethics and Health Law.


I received my PhD in philosophy from Rice University in 2011, after which I completed a clinical ethics fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic in 2013. From 2013 to 2015 I was the Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow of the Humanties at CMU.


My research is focused primarily on the ethics and methods of clinical research, with a special emphasis on research conducted in and on lower- and middle-income populations, as well as on the impacts of deliberative pathologies and inequalities of various sorts on the legitimate functioning of group decision-making procedures.
