In 2020-21, I am a Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow in the University of Chicago’s Division of the Social Sciences. I received my Ph.D. in 2020 from the University of Chicago’s Committee on Social Thought, where I completed a dissertation on perception and perceptual themes in Hegel’s systematic philosophy. My current research focuses on Hegel’s theoretical thought, the epistemology of literature, and the role of dogmatic physicalism in 20th century analytic philosophy.
My scholarship is driven by a particular commitment to practicing philosophy across disciplinary lines. I currently teach classes on the history of social and political philosophy, beginning with Plato and ending with Simone de Beauvoir and James Baldwin. Prior to coming to U Chicago, 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.
