My main interests include the philosophy of well-being and medical ethics. For my dissertation, I gave a comprehensive account of the development of human potential, a widely accepted but underdiscussed good. Other interests include social justice, the limits of liberalism, feminist philosophy, as well as philosophy of education.

Those most responsible for shaping my beliefs include John Stuart Mill, Wilhelm von Humboldt, Martha Nussbaum, William Galston, Iris Marion Young, Howard Gardner, and Abraham Maslow.
