I am a philosopher currently working as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Philosophy for the Embedded EthiCS Program @ Harvard University. Prior to coming to Harvard, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow in Computer Science with the Program for Leadership and Character at Wake Forest University.
I received my Ph.D. in Philosophy from Northwestern University in 2020, specializing in Aristotle’s theory of moral education. My dissertation reconstructs Aristotle’s notion of teaching and uses it to settle debates in Aristotle’s ethics, specifically concerning the development of the virtues of character and practical wisdom, and to solve a problem for Neo-Aristotelian educational theory. Now my passion is bringing lessons from Aristotelian moral education to bear on the ethics of technology. How can we live well with emerging technologies? How can we best prepare tomorrow’s computer scientists to be ethical leaders in their field? These are the questions that currently animate my thinking.
When I’m not thinking about human flourishing in the 21st century, I'm usually watching movies or biking around Cambridge with my wife and daughter. On weekends, we like to seek out new trails to hike in New England with our dog, Winston.
