I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of California, San Diego. From 2021-2023, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford University's McCoy Family Center for Ethics in Society. I earned my PhD in Philosophy at Duke University.
My research is in social and political philosophy, moral philosophy, and philosophy of social science. My main research project concerns problems related to social sorting and segregation. I am generally interested in how social scientific explanations of injustice figure into normative theorizing. I'm currently working on a project on spatial inequality, and another on measurements of segregation.
