I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Government at Dartmouth College. My primary area of research and teaching is contemporary political philosophy, with a focus on questions of economic justice.
My research addresses the ethical dimensions of our collective economic choices. I am interested in issues of distributive and social justice, justice and work, environmental ethics, and gender and family justice.
In my first book Free Time (Princeton University Press, 2016), I argue that all citizens are entitled, as a matter of justice, to fair shares of free time. I’m currently writing a new book on justice and economic growth, provisionally titled The Ends of Growth (under advance contract with Princeton University Press).
I received my Ph.D. from Princeton University in 2012. Prior to joining Dartmouth’s Government Department, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Brown University’s Political Theory Project and a Postdoctoral Fellow with Stanford University’s Center for Ethics in Society. In 2017-2018, I was a Fellow-in-Residence at the Edmond J. Safra Center at Harvard University.
At Dartmouth, I teach courses on Political Ideas, Ethics and Public Policy, Environmental Ethics, the Ethics of the Family, Ethics, Economics, and the Environment, and Justice and Work.
