I completed my PhD here in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania in May 2020. My dissertation project focused on the migration and integration of refugees and displaced people, and was written under the supervision of Kok-Chor Tan (dissertation supervisor), Brian Berkey, and Samuel Freeman.
