As a postdoc in the Cohen Lab at Princeton Neuroscience Institute, I will explore philosophical implications of our scientific understanding of the neural mechanisms and computational processes that constitute cognitive control. (I recently helped to organize a PNI/psychology conference to discuss such implications: Cognitive, Philosophical, and Neural Bases of Responsibility.) Outside the lab, my work has focused on moral psychology and on developing teaching methods to help people improve at open-minded analytical reasoning. I share software and teaching resources at Philosophy Mapped (PhilMaps.com), and software to support more productive and inclusive in-person group discussions at www.PalaverBeta.com.

From 2015-17 I was a postdoctoral research associate in the Philosophy Department at Princeton University. Next year I will join the philosophy faculty at Carnegie Mellon University.
