I am Postdoctoral Research Associate at Brown University's Political Theory Project. My research is driven by a simple question: How can we make moral progress despite pervasive disagreements in both normative and descriptive theory?
To tackle this question, my research focuses on issues in the intersection between political philosophy, philosophy of economics, institutional epistemology, moral epistemology and philosophy of science.
