Before that, I was a Postdoctoral Scholar in Engaged Ethics at the Rock Ethics Institute and The Schreyer Honors College at the Pennsylvania State University where I did research within the Empathy & Moral Psychology Lab and worked to develop a new ethics curriculum for The Schreyer Honors College.
My research interests are broad and range across philosophy of mind and action, ethics, epistemology, and moral psychology. I have a longstanding interest in practical irrationality, particularly self-control and self-deception, where I have worked on developing an account of what it is to come out of self-deception.
More recently, I have been working on conspiratorial beliefs and why they tenaciously persist over time as well as on the reasons that fuel and sustain vaccine-hesitancy. I am also working on a project about resilience where I propose that we abandon the traditionally individualistic notion known to undermine structural injustices and cause burnout in favour of a relational account of resilience. My paper "Rethinking Resiliency After Covid-19: Towards a Relational View" is forthcoming in a Routledge volume on Pandemic Relations: [Re]Forging our Moral Bonds in the Time of COVID-19, edited by Evandro Barbosa.
