Hello and welcome! I received my PhD in 2018 from University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill in the philosophy of youth and childhood studies. Before moving to North Carolina, I received a BA in philosophy from the University of Wisconsin in Madison. As an undergraduate, I also spent time living and studying abroad in Israel and Australia. My philosophical interests center on youth liberation, which I believe has transformative potential.
