I enjoy writing about issues of ethical importance for a broad audience. I am currently interested in examining the moral dimensions of policies having to do with immigration law, human rights, and higher education.
On a more foundational level, I am drawn to exploring the ethics of political attention. Given that attention is a scarce resource, what sorts of political discourse should we prioritize and why? Moreover, how do coherence constraints bear on determining what issues we should care about most, given our background values?
