I work primarily at the intersection of ethics, broadly construed, and empirically-informed moral psychology. I completed my PhD in August 2018 at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, where I wrote my dissertation under the supervision of Daniel Jacobson

I am currently a visiting Assistant Professor of philosophy at Amherst College

Before graduate school, I completed a BA in Indonesian studies, psychology, and philosophy (Honours) at the University of Sydney.  

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