I am a senior lecturer at Ohio State University, where I teach Engineering Ethics and 17th Century Philosophy. Previously, I worked at the Illinois Institute of Technology as a Fay Horton-Sawyier pre-doctoral teaching fellow.
I earned my PhD in 2017 from the University of South Florida. My dissertation explored the positive role of scientific experimentation in the philosophy and methodology of René Descartes and some of his early followers.
I've published in early modern philosophy and have done extensive translation and editorial work for the upcoming English edition of Descartes' correspondence.
Outside of philosophy, I am enthusiastic about impractical old cars, cooking, drawing and occasional photography [all pictures used on this site are my own].
