I hold a joint appointment in the Department of Philosophy and the College of Letters at Wesleyan University, and also currently serve as Director of the College of Letters.

My research focuses primarily on Ancient Greek and Roman Philosophy. In addition to my scholarship on Plato, I have interests in issues of philosophical method, philosophy as a way of life, the history and practice of rhetoric, ancient literature, virtue ethics, and moral psychology. Most of the courses I teach are on topics that are central to the study of ancient philosophy and the ancient world.
