My research interests include disability, the emotions, injustice, feminism, and bioethics. My dissertation studies the affective dimensions of injustice, including the affective injustice paradigm (Srinivasan, Whitney) and the weaponization of emotion through so-called 'therapy-speak.' I'm also interested in cyberspace as a setting in which affect is negotiated. 

I'm a philosopher-in-residence at Rainier Beach High School (Seattle, WA), and facilitate other precollege philosophy sessions with elementary, middle, and high school students through PLATO. I'm also a research assistant for the communications team at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society.
