Anna's research lies at the intersection of ethics and epistemology. Very broadly, she thinks about the epistemic dimension of morally significant social issues. She has recently worked on moral encroachment, the epistemology of prejudice, epistemic partiality in friendship, epistemic responsibility, the cognitive side of various moral virtues, and promising against the evidence. She also has interests in feminist philosophy and philosophy of religion.
