My research is in political philosophy and ethics. Most of my research is about how equality puts moral and political constraints on various types of special relationships.
I wrote a dissertation on how political liberalism tries to render the value of political community compatible with moral, philosophical, and religious diversity. I'm developing the ideas in a series of papers. I'm also interested in the morality of bearing and rearing children, and in ethical questions surrounding discrimination (especially discrimination in "personal" spheres like sex and romance).
I'm currently an assistant professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Manitoba. Before that (2014-2016), I was a postdoc in the School of Philosophy at the Australian National University. I got my PhD in Philosophy at Stanford University in 2014.
Besides philosophy, I like to write songs, walk around outside, and spend time with Lucian, the complicated.
