I am currently an assistant professor of bioethics & humanities, at the University of Washington School of Medicine. Generally, my work lies at the intersection of biomedical ethics, philosophy of technology, (black/latinx/queer) feminist thought, and aesthetics. More specifically, I am interested in the impact of artificial intelligence–driven neurotechnologies on their users’ experiences of agency, and the potential for moral enhancement technologies to exacerbate harms against marginalized communities.

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.

Finally, I am currently chair of the International Neuroethics Society’s Diversity and Inclusion Task Force.
