I am Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Nanyang Technological University, where I am the coordinator of the Minor in Gender and Diversity Studies, and the convenor of the Gender and Diversity research cluster. Prior to this, I was Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Ethics in Society, Stanford University.

My research interests centre, broadly, on issues in moral and political philosophy. I have published papers on political resistance, disability, justice, political liberalism, and effective altruism. My current research focuses on how individuals should remember and resist injustice.
