I'm a professional philosopher with specializations in philosophy of biology, philosophy of technology, and philosophical anthropology. My current work includes projects on fairness in machine learning and the epistemic value of analogies between biological and artificial neural networks.
After completing a PhD in Philosophy at Temple University in 2013, I did postdoctoral work at the Consortium for History of Science, Technology and Medicine (2014-2016), Dartmouth College (2016-2017), and the University of Pittsburgh (2017-2018). I've taught courses at University of Nevada, Las Vegas (2018-2022), Colby College (2020-2021), and Johns Hopkins University (2021-2022). I'm currently a full-time researcher at the Center for Equitable AI and Machine Learning Systems (CEAMLS) at Morgan State University, and a part-time instructor of philosophy in the Department of Philosophy & Religious Studies, Morgan State University.
