Alex Marmor

I hold an MA in philosophy from Brandeis University and a BA in philosophy from Boston University. My research is on moral psychology, philosophy of mind, epistemology, and ethics. I wrote my MA paper on the nature of reasons, and have presented my work at the top academic philosophy conference in the United States, APA Eastern.

I am enthusiastic about education entrepreneurship, education technology, online learning, and philosophy education. I am currently an instructional designer at Harvard University, where I am collaborating with Harvard Kennedy School faculty to build an online course on leadership on the edX platform. I am also program director of Wireless Philosophy, a Khan Academy partner organization for philosophy education. I have held teaching assistantships in philosophy at Harvard, Yale, and Brandeis. I am also an amateur programmer, and am learning how to program full-stack web applications.

Before coming to philosophy, I was a musician. I have studied music theory at Yale and cello performance at Berklee College of Music, the latter with a Grammy Award-winner and with a frequent collaborator of Yo-Yo Ma's.
