I’m a Lecturer at Princeton University. My research focuses on ancient philosophy with a special interest in principle justification, the ‘great scientific scandal,’ and the famously fraught relationship between Aristotle’s scientific theory and his scientific practice. See my Research Page for more. Outside of my work on Aristotle, I am interested in metaphysical explanation and questions about the methodology of the history of philosophy, particularly as they pertain to the history of ancient philosophy and canon formation.
I received my PhD in philosophy from Princeton University in 2021. I also hold a BA in Literae Humaniores (2013) and a BPhil in Philosophy (2015)—both from the University of Oxford. You can find my full CV here.
Outside of my work, I compete at the national level in stone put in Switzerland. Here is an article where I talk about the relationship between the sport and my work and research. I am also budding wildlife photographer–you can find some of my favorite photos dotted around this website (with more here)– and a contributor at the Working Class History Project.
