I am an Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. My research centers on moral psychology and the history of political economy, especially eighteenth century moral and political theory and the moral, economic, and political thought of Adam Smith. In my first book, Recognizing Resentment, I argued that spectatorial resentment enables justice through the recognition of equal moral and political right. (Hear more about the book on The Political Theory Review and the New Books Network!)
I received the Vilas Associates Award for research from 2022-2024 and the Chancellor's Distinguished Teaching Award in 2023 from UW-Madison.
I am on leave for Spring 2023 and on sabbatical for AY 2023-2024, at work on a series of new projects about Judith Shklar's skeptical liberalism.
