I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Philosophy Department at the University of Texas at Austin, where I got my PhD as a part of the Joint Program for Ancient Philosophy. My BA is from the University of Toronto.
I work on Ancient Greek philosophy, especially philosophy of language and metaphysics, with a focus on the Stoics. I am particularly interested in the Stoic theory of lekta, the development of theories of language and meaning in antiquity, and applications of the Stoic theory in contemporary philosophy of language.
While I work primarily on Hellenistic philosophy, I've also published papers on Plato's metaphysics and on the Presocratics (specifically on Eleatic metaphysics and epistemology). I maintain an active interest in early Greek science (especially astronomy and physics). Outside of the history of philosophy, I am interested in questions about inquiry, speech acts, and the metaphysics of propositions.
