I am currently a PhD candidate in the Interdepartmental Program in Classical Philosophy at Princeton University. Before I came to Princeton, I received Bachelor's degree in Philosophy and Classics from the University of Montana. For the 2017-2018 academic year I am a visiting member of the Philosophy, Science and the Sciences research training group at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.
I work primarily on classical philosophy, and my research focuses on argumentation and theories of fallacious reasoning in Plato, Aristotle, Isocrates and the Minor Socratics. My dissertation deals with the way Plato and Aristotle delineated philosophical reasoning in the marketplace of ideas of 4th century Greece, and specifically how they distinguished their philosophical enterprises from the competing offerings of rhetoricians like Isocrates and other Socratics like Euclid of Megara and Antisthenes of Athens.
In addition to my research in classical philosophy, I have strong interests in contemporary ethics generally and in environmental ethics in particular.
