I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in Stanford University's Center for Ethics in Society. Beginning in July 2014, I will be an Assistant Professor of Government at Dartmouth College.
 
I received my Ph.D. in Politics and Political Philosophy from Princeton University in 2012 (B.S., Cornell University School of Industrial and Labor Relations, 2007).  Before coming to Stanford, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Brown University's Political Theory Project.  

 

My research and teaching interests focus primarily on issues of economic and social justice in contemporary normative theory and the history of political thought, with additional interests in democratic and republican theory, feminist thought, environmental ethics, and constitutional law and theory.

I'm currently completing a book manuscript, Free Time (under advance contract with Princeton University Press), which argues that, as a matter of liberal social justice, all citizens are entitled to a fair share of free time.  A portion of this work was published in The Journal of Political Philosophy.  

My other ongoing research examines the moral justifiability of zero-growth economics, the normative foundations of distributive egalitarianism, the economic conditions of republican freedom, the nature of public goods, and claims to space and housing in liberal theories of justice.

Originally from Rochester and Long Lake, NY, I like to go hiking, cycling, kayaking, and running in the Adirondack Mountains.
