I am an assistant professor of philosophy at Claremont McKenna College.
The central theme of my work is that when it comes to what we should believe, morality is not voiceless.
My research—at the intersection of ethics, epistemology, and philosophy of race—is motivated by the recognition that our epistemic practices exist in an unjust and non-ideal world, I argue that there are moral and social constraints on our epistemic practices. Specifically, I argue for two main theses. First, beliefs can wrong, i.e., we can wrong not only through our actions and our words, but also our beliefs. Second, the epistemic justification of our beliefs can be affected by the moral demands of our environment, i.e., there is moral encroachment on epistemic justification.
