I am a PhD student in the Philosophy Department and the Classical Philosophy Program at Princeton University. I joined the department in 2015 after completing an MSt. in Ancient Philosophy at Queen's College, Oxford and a BA at the University of Chicago.
I specialize in ancient greek metaphysics, especially where it intersects with logic, philosophy of language, epistemology, or ethics. My dissertation concerns on the notion of essence in Plato and Aristotle. I also work on ancient philosophical discussions of contradiction, and in contemporary metaphysics on the status of normative properties. 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.
