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 am primarily interested in ancient Greek and Roman philosophy, especially Stoic ethics. I also maintain an active interest in contemporary ethical theory (normative ethics, metaethics, and applied ethics), intellectual history (esp. the history of moral philosophy and the history of natural philosophy), and logic.
