I'm a PhD candidate in philosophy at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I work primarily at the intersection of ethics and empirically-informed moral psychology.  I'm writing a dissertation about (putatively) moral emotions under the supervision of Daniel Jacobson.

Before coming to Michigan, I completed a BA (Languages) in Indonesian studies, psychology, and philosophy, and a BA (Honours) in philosophy at the University of Sydney. 

I am a co-founder and co-coordinator of the Mind & Moral Psychology Working Group. I also work for the University of Michigan's Center for Research on Learning & Teaching as a Graduate Student Instructional Consultant. 

When I'm not doing philosophy, I especially enjoy cooking (and eating!), biking, and hanging out with dogs (especially this one and this one).

Here's my CV, which includes a summary of my dissertation.
