I did a B.A. at Johns Hopkins (philosophy, cognitive science) and co-founded a tech-politics startup before doing a Ph.D. at Princeton.
I've taught philosophy at Penn since 2015, and have been a Teaching Fellow in Penn's Integrated Studies Program since 2017. I have taught courses at Penn on early modern philosophy, speech acts, philosophy of love and sexuality, philosophy of social science, and philosophy of science. I've also taught philosophy and literature at a youth correctional facility.
A book, Spinoza on Becoming Eternal, is currently taking shape in my laptop.
