Starting in fall of 2022, I will be a Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow in the Department of Philosophy at Auburn University. Previously, I held a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Chicago. I received my PhD in 2020 from the University of Chicago’s Committee on Social Thought, where I completed a dissertation on Hegel’s account of self-consciousness. My current research focuses on Hegel’s theories of mind and perception, the role of artworks in human life, and post-scientistic approaches to the natural world.
My scholarship is driven by a particular commitment to practicing philosophy across disciplinary lines. Prior to starting my PhD, I completed a project year thesis on medieval Christian and Islamic receptions of Aristotelian mimesis at the European College of Liberal Arts in Berlin, an MA in the history of Western thought at St. John’s College Annapolis, and a BA in Politics at Oberlin College.
