I am a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy at Marquette University. I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Philosophy at the University of South Florida where I wrote a dissertation on Stoic ethics in Descartes, Pascal, and Spinoza. More broadly, my research focuses on the intersections of ethics, epistemology, and philosophy of religion (metaphysics) in the early modern period, paying particular attention to Blaise Pascal and Thomas Hobbes. I also have done work in social-political thought and have additional interest in expanding the philosophical canon, existentialism/phenomenology, and philosophical pedagogy.


Some of my non-philosophy interests include sci-fi, independent music, and craft beer. I was recently interviewed in the Blog of the American Philosophical Association if you'd like to learn more.
