In my dissertation, “Self-Interest and Well-Being,” I argue that a full understanding of your well-being, which describes what is ultimately good or bad for you, needs to directly track what is ultimately good or bad for others as well.

In my published research thus far, I have explored the importance of being recognized as a person and the dangers of value capture in bioethics, AI ethics, pedagogy, political philosophy, and philanthropy.

In my current research, I am developing a sociohistorical account of how games and metrics have come to politically define rationality (via game theory and economics) in ways that make us unresponsive to the wisdom of the humanities.
