  1. Moral Offsetting’, forthcoming in The Philosophical Quarterly
    • This paper explores the idea of moral offsetting: the idea that good actions can offset bad actions in a way analogous to carbon offsetting.
  2. ‘Valuing Strangers’, presented at the 2019 Eastern APA (email me for a draft)
    • This paper considers the consequences of the apparently modest claim that it is wrong to value yourself more than a thousand times as much as you value strangers.
