Greetings! I am a teaching post-doctoral fellow in the Department of Philosophy at Stonehill CollegeMy primary research interests are Early Modern Philosophy and the History of Ethics. I have a particular passion for writing on underrepresented and non-canonical figures in the early modern period.

When I’m not lost in the 17th and 18th centuries, I am reading widely in contemporary ethics. I have recently waded into debates about love and the self-directed emotions. I plan to do some work on these issues in the not too distant future. My current project is a series of articles on figures in the British Moralist tradition (Cockburn, Hume, Masham, Shaftesbury, Butler, and Smith) — this work will culminate in a book on debates about the scope and limits of reasonable partiality in 18th century moral philosophy.

Outside of philosophy, I spend my time baking, watching movies, and attending concerts. For more on what I’m watching or listening to, click Here.
