About

I am a PhD candidate in the Classics and Philosophy Combined Program at Yale University. Before coming to Yale, I completed an MA in Philosophy at the University of Toronto (2011) and received my BA (also in Philosophy) from Western Oregon University (2010).

I specialize in ancient philosophy and am particularly interested in issues that lie at the intersection of ancient moral psychology, epistemology, and ethics. My dissertation is on arguments for the value of knowledge and learning for virtue and happiness in four Socratic dialogues (the Laches, the Protagoras, the Meno, and the Euthydemus).

My other philosophical interests include philosophy of education, ethics, and early modern philosophy.
