My main philosophical interests are in moral psychology, normative ethics, and philosophy of emotions. I am also developing competencies in ancient philosophy, aesthetics, and feminism. My dissertation is a historically-sensitive and empirically-informed philosophical inquiry into the nature of envy: I investigate its internal structure as an emotion, proposing a novel taxonomy according to which there are four varieties of envy, and use such a taxonomy to account why and when envy is bad and, more crucially, why and when it isn’t. The upshot is that, despite its notoriety, a properly cultivated variety of envy can contribute to human flourishing.
