I am a fifth year PhD student in the University of Michigan's Philosophy Department in Ann Arbor, where I am writing my dissertation under the supervision of Elizabeth Anderson. I was raised in Miami, Florida and attended school in upstate New York at Hamilton College.

I work primarily in ethics, moral epistemology (esp. the moral emotions), and feminist philosophy. I am most concerned with how power corrupts one's ability to cultivate emotional intelligence and how this intersects with one's moral responsibility.

When I'm not doing philosophy, I'm likely searching for a large body of water to swim in, cooking Cuban food, or teaching my dog (featured above) mostly pointless tricks.
