I’m an assistant professor of philosophy at Northwestern University. However, I will be spending this year at Princeton, as a Laurence S. Rockefeller Visiting Fellow in the Center for Human Values.
My primary interests are in ethics and practical reason, and their intersection with action theory. I’m particularly interested in the question of what we may be required to take responsibility for (in both backward-looking and forward-looking senses of that phrase). One broad theme of my work is that this is itself a distinctive normative question whose answer depends in various ways on one’s normative context–for example, on the background political and personal relations one is involved in.
Recently, I have been thinking about the proper role and limits of self-prediction in agents’ decision-making.
