I work at the intersection of philosophy of action, moral psychology, and ethics. My current research has two strands. One set of projects explores the implications of responsibility skepticism. In particular, I’m interested in whether and how we should revise our blaming practices—especially our repertoire of reactive attitudes—if no one is responsible. The other set of projects focuses on the nature, ethics, and practice of forgiveness. What is forgiveness? What is its role in our moral lives? How should we understand it as a personal and a political practice?
