Overview

I am a Ph.D student in the Department of Philosophy. I hold a B.A. in philosophy and in economics from Brown University and a J.D. from Yale Law School. Prior to arriving at Duke, I worked as a tax attorney in the New York office of the law firm Sullivan and Cromwell. My philosophical interests include legal and political philosophy, applied ethics, and topics in the philosophy of science. I am concurrently studying and engaging in research on tax policy at Duke Law School. In my leisure, I compose and perform classical and instrumental guitar music.
