I am a PhD Candidate in Philosophy at the University of Toronto. My primary research interests are ethics and social philosophy (especially feminism and critical race theory). My supervisor is Amy Mullin, and my other committee members are Arthur Ripstein and Andrew Franklin-Hall.
I research the ethics of conversation. Currently, I'm writing on the most subtle forms of conversational aggression. Microaggressions are blameworthy, even when the speaker does not intend to cause harm and does not in fact cause harm. My dissertation proposes a new model of moral responsibility to account for these counter-intuitive claims.
