I'm an Assistant Teaching Professor in the Department of Philosophy and Religion at Northeastern University. Previously, I was a Lecturer in the Philosophy Department at the University of Toronto and affiliated with its Collaborative Program in Ancient and Medieval Philosophy. I work on Ancient Greek & Roman Philosophy and Ethics. 

In November 2017, I received my PhD from the University of Toronto, writing under the supervision of Rachel Barney, with Brad Inwood, James Allen, and Tom Hurka as readers. During my time in the PhD program I held a Connaught International Scholarship for doctoral work. 

I did my undergraduate degree at Wabash College, a liberal arts college in Indiana, and before that I taught English in northern China. 

You can find my CV here.

More information about my research and teaching is on my research page here and my teaching page here.

In my spare time, I like to return to what I first thought doing philosophy was, reading novels and poetry and watching films.
