I am currently a Post-Doctoral Fellow in Ethics and Cognition in the Department of Philosophy and Center for Ethics and Policy at Carnegie Mellon University.  My primary interests are in moral psychology, ethical theory, and applied ethics.  I am particularly interested in exploring questions such as: 

  1. What kinds of factors influence our moral judgment and decision making?

  2. How should this shape our normative and prescriptive ethical theories?

  3. How can we engage in better moral decision making?

In investigating these questions, I draw on research in ethical theory, experimental philosophy, cognitive science, and social psychology.
