I am a Bersoff Faculty Fellow in the NYU Philosophy Department. Before joining NYU, I completed a PhD in philosophy at Princeton University in August, 2022.
I specialize in ancient Greek and Roman philosophy. My recent research focuses on foundational issues in ancient Greek metaphysics, including the concept of essence and the Principle of Non-contradiction. I am also interested in contemporary metaphysics, ancient Greek and Roman ethics, and the reception of Aristotelianism in medieval Jewish and Islamic philosophy. For more about my work, see my research page.
I am on the steering committee for the Open Plato Project. We are creating a digital translation and commentary of Plato's Alcibiades to serve as model for a new and more open kind of resource for readers of ancient Greek philosophical texts.
From 2016-2018, I served as Resident Graduate Student (RGS) at Mathey College, where my work included founding and directing the Mathey College Portraiture Project. You can find the Project website here and the gallery of (amazing!) student work here.
When I am not writing or teaching, I am often making a sandwich or trying a new hot sauce. You can follow some of my hot sauce adventures here.
