I am an associate professor of Philosophy at the University of Massachusetts, Boston. My research is in ethical theory, political philosophy, feminist theory and global ethics.

You can read about some of my research here, at Meena Krishnamurthy’s blog Philosop-her

I am a director of PIKSI Boston (Philosophy in an Inclusive Key Summer Institute, Boston branch). PIKSI Boston is a collaboration between MIT and UMass Boston that is funded by the APA, MIT and the Mellon Foundation. It is designed to encourage undergraduates from underrepresented groups (e.g., women, African Americans, Chicano/as and Latino/as, Native Americans, Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, LGBTs, economically disadvantaged communities, and people with disabilities) to consider future study of philosophy.

We also collaborate with another PIKSI (PIKSI Rock) at Penn State. Please apply or direct undergraduates who might be interested to apply in March of 2016.  Philosophy in an Inclusive Key Summer Institute

I am currently chair of FEAST (Feminist Ethics and Social Theory). FEAST is having a conference from October 1-4 of this year in Florida focused on “Contested Terrains: Women of Color, Feminism and Geopolitics”  FEAST is home to many different philosophical approaches and its conferences offer a wide variety of groundbreaking research in feminist ethics and social theory. The conferences are held in beautiful places with cool people and thus you can combine nature appreciation, swimming, beaches/deserts, and hot tubs with communal philosophical inquiry. FEAST is especially dedicated to supporting the work of new or overlooked scholars. See the FEAST website for more details.
