Area of Interest: Emotion, Applied Ethics, Psychology
I spend a lot of time thinking about how philosophy and psychology interact with one another. I am interested in what phenomenological accounts of mental illness can teach us about agency and identity, the relationship between reason and emotion, and ethical issues regarding mental healthcare and the language we use to describe mental illness. I am also interested in how philosophy can illuminate (or be illuminated by) different psychotherapeutic practices.
I also entertain long-standing interests in other areas of applied philosophy, such as the philosophy of education, labor ethics, and the ethics of procreation and parenthood.
