Starting this winter, I will be Visiting Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the American University in Bulgaria.

From 2014 to 2015, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at The Hannah Arendt Center and a Teaching Fellow at the Bard Prison Initiative, a college-in-prison program that grants Bard College degrees to incarcerated men and women at medium and maximum security prisons. In the spring of 2014, I earned a PhD in philosophy at the New School for Social Research in New York City, where I also earned an M.A. in Philosophy with a concentration in Psychoanalysis.

My chief area of research is ancient Greek and Roman philosophy, in particular the philosophy of the Academy in the early Hellenistic period (roughly from Polemo to Carneades). My approach to this area is inspired by Kantian and post-Kantian critical philosophy, the potential convergence of a negativistic ethics in the Early Frankfurt school with the collective power of dissent in the later thought of Hannah Arendt. I should also mention the importance of Foucault’s 1981-82 lectures on Hellenistic and Roman ethics. At the moment, papers on ancient ethics developed from the critical perspective of the New Academy are forthcoming.
