I am an Assistant Professor of philosophy at University of Nebraska–Lincoln. In the fall, I will be an Assistant Professor at Harvard. My research focuses on the ethics of love and relationships, which, I argue, is pretty much all of ethics.
I am interested in the ethics of interpersonal relationships, with projects in honesty and discretion, partiality, consent, paying it forward, and forgiveness, as well as more applied projects on deception in the social science research and the politics of technology and privacy. I also have interests in love and the special permissions and obligations it can bring. And, perhaps more strangely, I explore the idea that love of all, agape, can serve as a (even the) central ideal of practical reasoning.
