My work is in the areas of ethics, political philosophy, and PPE (Politics, Philosophy and Economics). My primary research asks what role factual constraints should play in moral and political philosophy and by extension, whether it is permissible to “idealize”, that is, represent the world and the agents within it as being more perfect than their actual versions. This aside, I also work on the ethics of various public policy issues such as gun control, workplace justice, and the impact of social media on public health.
