I am a PhD candidate in philosophy at Saint Louis University. My research interests mainly revolve around well-being, ethics, and political philosophy. In addition to my main degree, I have a graduate minor in Women and Gender Studies.

Most recently, I was a research assistant for the Happiness and Well-Being Project, which was headed by my advisor Dan Haybron. Happiness and Well-Being Project: Integrating Research Across the Disciplines was a three-year, $5.1 million project based at Saint Louis University, and was aimed at fostering dialogue and collaboration among well-being researchers across a wide range of disciplines, including the sciences, philosophy, and theology and religious studies. The project was funded mainly by a $4.6 million grant from the John Templeton Foundation, with $453,000 in additional funding from Saint Louis University.

In addition to my academic studies, I am currently doing a clinical ethics practicum, the goal of which is to attain an understanding of the complicated moral issues that are faced in the field of medicine.

I received my MA in political philosophy from the University of York in 2013, and my BA in politics from UC Santa Cruz in 2007.
