I was previously an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Arkansas and have held fellowships at the University of Chicago and at Harvard University’s Center for Hellenic Studies. My PhD in Philosophy is from the University of Toronto.

My current research projects focus primarily on Aristotle and debates in Ethics, Metaphysics, and Philosophy of Action that his work has inspired.
