About Me

I am a PhD candidate in philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania. Prior to my doctoral studies, I received a B.A. in Philosophy and Humanities from Villanova University (2014) and completed the post-baccalaureate program in Classical Studies at the University of Pennsylvania (2015). I was also a visiting student in Philosophy & Classics at Blackfriars Hall, University of Oxford (2013).

My primary area of research is ancient Greek and Roman philosophy, especially Stoicism. I also maintain an active interest in contemporary moral philosophy, intellectual history, and logic.
