A picture of Jake

I am an assistant professor of philosophy at USC. Before coming to USC, I received a PhD from NYU in 2019, a BPhil from Oxford in 2015, and an AB from Princeton in 2013.

I work mostly on questions in normative ethics and the theory of value. My interests in those areas include the ethics of population, distribution, and risk; the formal structure of value relations; the normative significance of various cognitive biases and violations of expected utility theory; and the nature, content, and importance of well-being. I am also interested in reasons, propositions, and questions.
