  • Graduate Student, Department of Philosophy

Prior to joining the University of Pittsburgh in 2016, I received my Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy from McGill University. My main philosophical interests lie in the history of philosophy (especially Ancient Philosophy and German Idealism) and moral psychology. Outside of philosophy, my primary interests in Classics are about the philology of psychological terms in Ancient Greek and the reconstruction of Ancient Greek music (especially music involving the lyre). Lately I’ve been particularly focused on Aristotle’s account of thumos, and how he was influenced in this regard by Plato and Homer.
