I’m a PhD candidate in Philosophy and the Collaborative Program in Classical Philosophy at Princeton University. My research investigates ancient views on the place of morality in the happy life. More specifically, I am reconstructing a debate in the 5th Century BCE about the role justice plays in the happy life and then using this debate to offer a new interpretation of Plato’s on views on justice in the Republic. My primary supervisor is Hendrik Lorenz and my secondary supervisor is Alexander Nehamas. I am also working closely with Melissa Lane of the Politics Department and Rachel Barney from the University of Toronto . Outside of my work in ancient philosophy, I am also very interested in ethics and moral philosophy, particularly work examining the place the virtues have occupy in the happy life. You can find a course I have designed about this question on the teaching page.
I was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario. Before coming to Princeton, I completed an undergraduate degree in Philosophy and a MA in Political Theory at the University of Toronto.
