I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy and in the Program in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at the University of Michigan. I work in political philosophy on a variety of issues such as the value of democracy and the nature of our duties toward the global poor. The underlying theme that runs through my work is a concern with equality (political, economic, and social). I am currently writing a series of papers and a related book on Martin Luther King Jr.’s political philosophy.

You can learn more about my research here. You can listen to me talk about my recent work at the UnMute Podcast and at the Love and Social Justice Podcast. You can also see me give a talk here.

I was the editor of the blog Philosopher which showcases work by philosophers from underrepresented groups in philosophy.
