She also pursues interests in normative ethics, the history of moral philosophy, philosophy of sports, and epistemology. She is the author of several articles in scholarly journals and has work forthcoming in The Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Utilitarianism and Oxford Studies in Normative Ethics. In 2012-2013, she was a Faculty Fellow at the Rice University Center for Humanities, where she completed work for her forthcoming book, which develops an analysis of achievements.
