I am a PhD candidate in philosophy at Northwestern University. I am interested in how communication works–and how it goes wrong–especially in non-ideal circumstances. I use tools from linguistic pragmatics to understand various phenomena: the role of power in communication, discursive injustice, and the communication of consent.

But I don’t like to spend all my time on philosophy. I also enjoy cooking and eating good food, playing with my cat Coleslaw, exploring Chicago, coordinating and participating in healthy socialization for myself and other philosophers, and watching TV.
