I’m an educator and researcher specializing in social and political philosophy, feminist and applied ethics, critical race theory, and carceral studies. I’m interested in the questions of complicity, responsibility, solidarity, abolition, and care. I got my PhD in Philosophy and Certificate in Women’s and Gender Studies from Stony Brook University in 2017. I currently teach environmental and biomedical (and other) ethics courses at Rowan University. My first book, White Ignorance and Complicit Responsibility: Transforming Collective Harm beyond the Punishment Paradigm, was published by Lexington Books in January 2022. My current research seeks to understand, amplify, and develop moral and political frameworks that can transform the conditions of structural harms, and includes a second book project on nursing home abolition and the creation of a care commons.
