About Me:

I am a Teaching Fellow at Durham University, where I teach 17th century philosophy, ethics, and epistemology. Previously, I worked at the Ohio State University and 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. I've also just begun work on a translation of the philosophical writings of Blaise, Jacqueline, and Gilbert Pascal.

Outside of philosophy, I am enthusiastic about impractical old cars, cooking, drawing and occasional photography [all pictures used on this site are my own].
