Kaci joined the PhD program at The Graduate Center, CUNY in 2020. Her main research interests focus on the various intersections between humor, aesthetics, social epistemology, and emotions. More specifically, she is starting to think about what others’ aesthetic preferences reveal about them, especially regarding knowledge. Before coming to the GC, Kaci received her MA in Philosophy from the University of Missouri-St. Louis and her BA in Philosophy and Literature from the University of Evansville. In her "spare time" she enjoys cooking while listening to podcasts, reading fiction, and playing cute video games (for research!).
