I’m a PhD candidate in philosophy at Harvard University.  I work mainly in the philosophy of science and the philosophy of social science on topics that intersect with metaphysics, epistemology, and ethics.  My dissertation is concerned with the explanatory role of preferences — both descriptive and normative — in the social sciences.

Other topics that I work on include: causal and non-causal explanation, the ethics of technology, algorithms and fairness, and explanation in economics.
