I am a Doctoral Candidate of Philosophy at the University of Utah. I work primarily at the intersection of Philosophy of Psychiatry, Philosophy of Law, and Clinical Ethics under the direction of Dr. Natalia Washington. My research is focused on the relationship between agency, responsibility, and mental illness; chiefly, how the act of diagnosing psychiatric disorders creates particularly negative characterizations of individuals with mental illnesses, which has detrimental effects both within and outside of the clinician's office.
Originally from Long Island, I made my way to the Green Mountain State and completed my B.A. in Philosophy and Psychology at Saint Michael's College. In my free time, I enjoy hiking up Utah's mountains, skiing down them, and taking in the view with a hot cup of coffee.
