Joining the PPJ team in Fall 2016 as Editorial Assistant, I've since taken on the role of Managing Community Director to help refine the PPJ's intellectual architecture and build our community. In Summer 2018, I completed a Ph.D. in Philosophy at Michigan State University with a dissertation that examines Theodor Adornoâ€™s career-long critique of Martin Heideggerâ€™s Fundamental Ontology. The dissertation ultimately proposes that the core aims and approaches of critical social theory on the one hand, and existential phenomenology on the other, are mutually supportive, and that, when pursued together, these two leading areas in 20th Century Continental Philosophy can maximize the successes of social critique and change. I also work in the Metro Atlanta area as an advocate for victims and survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence.
