I came to Princeton via the University of Iowa (B.A. 2013, Philosophy and Classical Languages) and Cambridge (MPhil 2014, Classics; thesis “Aristotelian and Evolutionary Ethics: Examining Moral Naturalism”).
I am a University Administrative Fellow in the James Madison Program.
My research interests are centered on ancient and contemporary moral philosophy, and also include textual criticism, ancient history, and biology. I’m currently writing a dissertation on Aristotle’s views of animal ethics and ecological ethics, and how those views result from his belief in a heavily purposive structure of the natural world.
I’m also an active teacher and mentor, and have led courses and classes at Princeton and Mercer Community College, covering topics in moral philosophy, ancient and medieval history, and Latin.
