I am from Baltimore, proud home of Edgar Allan Poe, H.L. Mencken, John Waters, and Henrietta Lacks. (To read more about how growing up in Baltimore affected my research trajectory, please see my dissertation acknowledgements.)

I hold a B.A. from Brown University and a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan. I conduct research on moral psychology, emotions, personal identity, humor, and aesthetics.

At present, I am a Postdoctoral Associate at Duke University.
