I am currently a Postgraduate Research Associate in the Department of Philosophy at Princeton University, and a Lecturer in the Princeton Environmental Insitute. I recently completed my doctoral work, also at Princeton, as a Harold W. Dodds Honorific Fellow in the  Interdepartmental Program for Classical Philosophy. I also spent two years of my graduate work as a Visiting Graduate Fellow in the "Philosophy, Science and the Sciences" Research Training Group at Humboldt University in Berlin. 

My primary area of research is Ancient Philosophy, and my research focuses on Plato and Aristotle's demarcation of philosophy from rival intellectual pursuits, such as sophistry and rhetoric. I also have research and teaching interests in environmental ethics, and in normative and applied ethics more generally. More information about my research and teaching can be found on my research and teaching pages. 

When I'm not doing philosophy I enjoy cycling, hiking, and birdwatching (my life list is here).
