I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of New Orleans. I completed my Ph.D. in philosophy at the University at Buffalo.

My research focuses on normative justifications of realized institutions and the moral norms that govern our roles within them. I am especially interested in the institutions of law enforcement. Right now I am working on a project about what legitimate policing looks like when there are failures in adjacent components of our political and criminal justice systems.
