I am a Lecturer in the Philosophy Department at Dartmouth College. Beginning Fall 2020, I will be a Teaching Assistant Professor in the Philosophy Department at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
My work is primarily in metaphysics and social philosophy. I also have research interests in feminist philosophy, the philosophy of social science, and political philosophy. I have written on topics including the metaphysics of social objects, feminist metaphysics, grounding and essence in the social realm, and the nature of money and cryptocurrencies.
I received my PhD in Philosophy from New York University in 2016, and my BPhil in Philosophy from Oxford University in 2010. Prior to that, I studied political economy and Russian language & literature at the University of California, Berkeley.
