I am a third-year graduate student focusing primarily on issues in political philosophy, applied ethics, and philosophy of law. Specifically, I am concerned with issues of distributive justice and how the capabilities approach can be used to formulate our human rights and to address issues of systemic oppression. I am also interested in issues in epistemology regarding the nature of knowledge and justification.
