Emily graduated with honors from Ursinus College with a double major in Political Science and Philosophy.
Philosophically, Emily strives to keep the questions she works on practical and results-oriented, and in this vein she holds out hope that a combination of clear-thinking and longing will lead her to the Best Life (pretentious capital letters necessary). This hope led her to start her philosophical adventures in political philosophy, where she fell head over heels for Dante Alighieri. More recently, Emily has found herself drawn to cognitive science and philosophy of mind, where she is learning as quickly as she can about the fragility of consciousness and all the varied, personal-reality-altering problems that fragment and enlarge the self.
In her free time, Emily reads popular science books, tries to teach herself Ancient Greek (with limited success), plays video games, and writes rambling treatises on pub napkins.
