—Scholar, Editor, Writer
Greetings. Welcome to my site!
I am a PhD candidate in the Philosophy Department at Johns Hopkins University. I spent the first three years of my doctoral studies at Yale University.
I study 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.
In addition to being a researcher, I am an experienced editor of academic writing. I help scholars and students—particularly non-native English speakers—produce polished, grammatically correct, stylistically compelling, and structurally sound manuscripts. I assist my clients in molding their work according to their intended audience and argumentative and expository aims.
I welcome questions about my academic projects as well as (and even more so!) the opportunity to learn what others are thinking about. I also welcome inquiries about my editing services. Please feel free to contact me.
