I am a Postdoctoral Associate with the Virtues of Attention project at New York University. I have taught at Brown University and at the City of College of New York. I earned a Ph.D. in Philosophy from CUNY Graduate Center, with an Interdisciplinary Concentration in Cognitive Science, as well as a Masters in Philosophy from the University of Hawai`i. My research at the intersection of Buddhist philosophy, moral philosophy, and cognitive science draws on my textual, meditative, and monastic training in the Theravāda Buddhist tradition of Burma (Myanmar), including work as an interpreter and teacher at meditation retreats.
