Since the fall of 2011, I have been an assistant professor in the philosophy department at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Before coming to Chapel Hill, I completed an MA in Classics (1997-2003) and an MA (1998-2002) and PhD (2003-2007) in Philosophy at Leiden University, The Netherlands. I also worked as an assistant professor at Washington University in St. Louis (2007-2011) and spent a year as a residential fellow at the Harvard University Center for Hellenic Studies (2010-2011).
My main research interests are in ancient philosophy, with special interests in Aristotelian natural philosophy and philosophy of science, ancient medicine, and the history and philosophy of biology.
I am also a regular volunteer at the Goathouse Refuge in Pittsboro.
