I am a Program Director at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University. I earned my Ph.D. from the Department of Religion at Columbia University in 2018 and my master’s from Harvard University in 2009. My research—most recently—explores the role of technology and science in shaping religious and ethical practices. I also specialize in non-western forms of Christian thought and practice. My work has appeared in the Journal of ReligionReligion & Literature, and Harvard Divinity Bulletin, among other print and online publications. I have taught courses in ethics, religion, and philosophy at Columbia University, Mount Allison University, and Phillips Exeter Academy. I also have experience working for and with various academic centers, serving as a Mellon Interdisciplinary Fellow at the Interdisciplinary Center for Innovative Theory and Empirics (INCITE) at Columbia University, a Research Associate at the Pluralism Project at Harvard University, and a Research Assistant within the Harvard Business School.
