My research is at the intersection of contemporary ethics and ancient philosophy, and focuses on the nature of moral emotions such as anger, resentment, and sympathy and how those affect our relationships with others and social virtue: when we should blame or forgive, how this matters for judgments of moral responsibility, what virtues we ought to develop in social relationships, and how moral emotions should affect the demands of intimate relationships. I am interested both in ethical views in their own right, as well as bringing ancient philosophers into conversation with contemporary ethical debates.
