Greetings. Welcome to my site!


I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in the University Writing Program (UWP) at Johns Hopkins University, where I received my PhD in Philosophy in 2022.

As a Fellow in the UWP,  I study cutting-edge theories in rhetoric and composition, writing studies, and writing across the curriculum/writing within the disciplines; design innovative writing courses for undergraduates at Hopkins; and conduct research in writing pedagogy.

As a scholar, I work on the history of philosophy. I focus mainly on early modern European thought and particularly the work of Baruch Spinoza. But my published research covers thinkers from the medieval period to the nineteenth century. I believe that there are many interesting ways to study philosophy, its history, and its connection to other forms of inquiry.

I welcome questions about my teaching projects and scholarship, as well as (and even more so!) the opportunity to learn what others are teaching, contemplating, and writing about. Please feel free to contact me
