About Me

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Vienna on the ERC project “The Normative and Moral Foundations of Group Agency”. Before that, I did a PhD at the CUNY Graduate Center, a MA at the University of Vienna, and a BA at the University of British Columbia, all in philosophy.

My philosophical interests include philosophy of action, ethics, social and political philosophy, philosophy of social science, and experimental philosophy. Right now, I'm working on a normative view of collective intention based on the idea that when people form a collective intention they mess with each other’s minds in an obligation-generating way.

My CV and email address are below. You can find published papers and syllabi for courses I've taught on the research and teaching pages, respectively.
