I specialize in philosophy of science, biomedical ethics, and feminism in health policy, especially with pharmaceutical drugs. My research explores the how values and gender norms shape drug regulation at the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), involving reproductive health and drug labels, and the consequences for women’s health and reproductive justice.

Through philosophy, I work on issues in social justice, public policy, and industry-funded research. To engage a broader audience, I write essays about public philosophy and science communication. To get outside my head, I climb rocks and read comics. My daily struggle is keeping terrariums, bonsai trees, and other house plants alive in the uncooperative, desert climate.
