I hold a joint appointment in the Department of Philosophy and the College of Letters at Wesleyan University. 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, the history and practice of rhetoric, 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. As seen above, I’ve also been known on occasion to time-travel to the Parthenon.
For the spring of 2019, I’ll be a faculty fellow at Wesleyan’s Center for the Humanities and teaching a seminar on Plato’s Sophist and Statesman. For the 2019-2020 academic year, I’ll be on sabbatical.
