Research, teaching, and advocacy in ecofeminism, animal ethics, and philosophy for children.
I am an independent scholar and part-time faculty in the Department of Philosophy and the Comparative History of Ideas program at the University of Washington. I am also the Education Director of the UW Center for Philosophy for Children, Philosopher-in-Residence at John Muir Elementary School in Seattle, and an Associate Editor of the journal Precollege Philosophy and Public Practice (P4).
My main area of research is ecofeminist animal ethics. I think and write about conflicts of interest between humans and other animals. I am currently working on a book proposal about the complex moral dimensions of managing obligations to animals when they conflict with important familial and cultural traditions. I am also interested in what moral repair might look like in an inter-species setting, in particular in the context of animal sanctuaries. As an intersectional scholar and activist, I am proud to serve on the Advisory Board of Food Empowerment Project, a vegan food justice organization.
