I am currently an assistant professor in the Department of Philosophy at Loyola University New Orleans.  I earned my most recent Ph.D. from the Department of Philosophy at MIT; my dissertation is entitled “Antidepressants, Bioenhancements, and the Ethics of Self-Respect.”  Before coming to MIT, I completed two postdoctoral fellowships at Harvard University: one in the Department of the History of Science (studying the role of neuroscientific findings in popular self-help literature), and the other in the Mind Brain Behavior Initiative (studying the placebo effect).  Before that, I received a Ph.D. in neuroscience at Yale University, where my dissertation focused on G Protein regulation (and the basic biology underlying antidepressant mechanisms).  My current work is on a range of philosophical topics linking neuroscience, psychiatry, ethics, philosophy of psychiatry, philosophy of science, philosophy of mind, and feminist theory. It includes research on the ethics of antidepressant use, and on the implications of neuroscientific research for feminism.
