I am a PhD candidate in Philosophy at Duke University. I work on topics in end-of-life ethics, including what it means to "die well," palliative care ethics, and the moral psychology of grief, aging, and dying. While focusing on philosophical and policy questions, I also have interests in medical humanities and what memoirs of dying can tell us about the dying process.


I received my J.D. from Duke in 2017, specializing in health law and policy, and was recently a Visiting Scholar at the Hastings Center.
