Position:

Graduate Student

Campus:

St. George,

Biography:

My research interests are in ancient philosophy, particularly Plato’s practical philosophy, philosophy of mind, philosophy of language, and philosophy of art, where they tend to focus on Plato’s views on craft and expertise, pragmatics of oral and written communication, and aesthetic experience. My secondary philosophical interests lie at the intersection of contemporary philosophy of language, aesthetics and philosophy of art, as they concern fictionality in artworks, aesthetic and creative experience, and normativity in art. I am also fascinated by questions of methodology in the history of philosophy. Outside of philosophy, I maintain an interest in literary studies, translation, and creative writing, and an affection for coffee and cats.
