I'm finishing up my PhD in the Department of Philosophy and the Joint Program in Ancient Greek and Roman Philosophy at the University of Chicago. My dissertation "The Labors of Wisdom" defends a novel account of the nature of practical wisdom (φρόνησις) and its role in Aristotle's ethics and politics, focusing on its origins in the ethical experience needed to exercise the virtues. My research interests include ancient philosophy, ethics, moral psychology, political philosophy, and philosophy and literature. I studied ancient philosophy in Oxford and Cambridge on a Marshall Scholarship and held a Beinecke Scholarship for graduate study in the humanities for five years.

Descriptions of my research projects are under work. I write about ancient philosophy from time to time, along with former colleagues of mine at Cambridge, at Blogistikon, and maintain a profile on Academia.edu.
