I’m an active duty army officer currently working toward a PhD in Sociology at Duke University. My areas of interest are focused on the interaction between status and moral judgments. Specifically, I’m interested in investigating better measurements of both status within moral communities and how membership in moral communities attenuates moral judgments of responsibility and guilt as well as punishment.
I have written for PBS Point of View Regarding War on Women and War as well as the New York Times At War Blog and have two books regarding my own experiences during the Iraq War.
I’ve served as visiting lecturer at Roosevelt University’s Marriage and the Family Class
