Starting in August 2020 I will be an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Arkansas.

I am currently the John and Daria Barry Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Chicago.

From 2018 to 2019 I held a research fellowship at Harvard University's Center for Hellenic Studies.

I received my PhD in Philosophy from the University of Toronto as part of the Collaborative Program in Ancient and Medieval Philosophy.

I am writing a monograph, Aristotle on Happiness, Virtue, and Wisdom, which is under contract with Cambridge University Press.
