Dissertation Project

I specialize in moral philosophy, political theory, and PPE. I'm currently focused on understanding the value of our emotions, especially in political discourse. We need to understand the role of emotions in driving political polarization and maintaining social norms. And, we need to know what kind of moral obligations can be activated by encountering the emotions of loved ones, co-citizens, and strangers.
