Research

My primary research interests are in political philosophy. I write about justice and of legitimacy, and about how principles of justice and legitimacy can (or can't) help us think through and address problems pertaining to gender and education. I'm interested especially in questions about whether political liberalism can constitute an adequate theory of legitimacy within these two domains of application. I'm currently working on a book tentatively called Liberalism, Neutrality, and the Gendered Division of Labor.

I've also written about diversity in the discipline of philosophy and about teaching philosophy, and I have research interests in some areas of applied ethics.
