About

I’m currently a visiting scholar in the philosophy department at the University of Pennsylvania and an adjunct faculty member in George Mason University’s philosophy department. I received my Ph.D. in philosophy from Emory University in May 2020, and in recent years I have taught at Emory and Georgia Tech.

My current research stands at the intersection of ancient philosophy, ethics, and moral psychology. I wrote my dissertation on the nature and value of hope in the moral psychologies of Plato and Aristotle. I also have interests in virtue ethics, Buddhist philosophy, classics, the philosophy of science, and the history of philosophy (broadly construed).

For the academic year 2018-19, I was a Mellon Graduate Teaching Fellow at Agnes Scott College. Before that, I served as a faculty member of the Emory-Tibet Science Initiative (ETSI). In the spring of 2020, I assisted in the development of Georgia Tech’s Center for Ethics and Technology by organizing talks and communicating the value of the Center to institutional stakeholders.
