I'm a PhD candidate in Philosophy at Rutgers University, New Brunswick. I work on topics at the intersection of feminist philosophy, social philosophy, and metaphysics, and I'm advised by Ted Sider. 

My dissertation, How To Be Social, focuses on relationships between linguistic items in natural language (like names and predicates) and metaphysical entities (like properties and kinds) in the social domain. In this area, I am particularly interested in questions about gender and race, but I also work on more general questions about the nature of socially constructed properties and kinds, and their relationship to natural language.
