My primary research interests are ethics and social philosophy, especially feminism and critical race theory. I am a PhD candidate at the University of Toronto, and in Fall 2021, I will be starting as an Assistant Professor at St. Mary's University (Halifax)

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.
