I am a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Washington, where I work primarily on a National Institutes of Health–funded project investigating how neurotechnologies impact user agency. More specifically, I am interested in the possible impact of biomimetic feedback from brain-computer interfaces (BCIs)—e.g., a prosthetic limb that provide sensory feedback—on users’ abilities to trust their sensations. More generally, my work lies at the intersection of biomedical ethics, philosophy of technology, (black/latinx/queer) feminist thought, and aesthetics.

I earned my Ph.D. in Philosophy from University of Washington in December 2019.

I am a long-time member of the Center for Neurotechnology’s (CNT) Neuroethics Thrust—where I support efforts to teach neuroethics to young investigators, catalyze ethics investigations through interdisciplinary collaborations, and promote the field of neuroethics through public outreach. Through the CNT’s support, I was also able to serve as an “embedded ethicist” with UW’s Biorobotics Laboratory, an electrical / computer engineering lab leading investigations on human-machine interactive systems.

Currently, I also serve as Chair of the International Neuroethics Society’s Diversity & Inclusion Task Force.
