I am a graduate student in Philosophy at Yale University. I joined the department in 2014, after completing an M.Phil in Ancient Philosophy (Classics) at Cambridge University and a B.A. in Philosophy and Classics at Pomona College.
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, Spinoza, Kant, Frege, and the early Wittgenstein. I expect that my thesis will center on Spinoza’s theory of mind, particularly his account of the relation between intellect and will.
