I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Arkansas, having previously held fellowships at the University of Chicago’s Department of Philosophy and at Harvard University’s Center for Hellenic Studies. I received my PhD in Philosophy from the University of Toronto as part of the Collaborative Program in Ancient and Medieval Philosophy.

My current research projects focus primarily on Aristotle and current debates in Ethics, Metaphysics, and Philosophy of Action that his work has inspired. Among these projects is a monograph called Aristotle on Happiness, Virtue, and Wisdom, forthcoming from Cambridge University Press.
