I am currently a graduate student in Philosophy at Yale University. Before starting at Yale, I completed an M.Phil in Ancient Philosophy (Classics) at Cambridge University and a B.A. in Philosophy and Classics at Pomona College. In 2019, I will be joining the University of Chicago as an Assistant Professor of Philosophy.

My interests are diverse, although centered in the history of philosophy. I am mostly interested in questions about logic, mind, and metaphysics. Some of the philosophers who most interest me are Aristotle, Descartes, Cavendish, Spinoza, Hume, Frege, and the early Wittgenstein. My dissertation’s title is “Spinoza’s Metaphysics of Ideas: Deflating Necessity and Causation Through the Identity of Intellect and Will.”
