I’m a Postdoctoral Research Associate and Lecturer for the Department of Philosophy at Princeton University, where I work in the Princeton Project in Philosophy and Religion with Andrew Chignell. My principal research focus is Immanuel Kant and the German Idealist tradition, as well as ethics and religion broadly construed.
I research the form and function of ideals in the German Idealist tradition. One of my current projects focuses on Kant’s theory of the highest good, as well as new developments in his moral and religious thought in his last, posthumous work, the Opus postumum. I also have interests in Hegel’s idea of life, which is a project in development. For more information on my general research, click here.
I completed my Ph.D. at Johns Hopkins in 2020 under the guidance of Eckart Förster. My dissertation, “Evolving the Highest Good: A Study of a Kantian Ideal,” investigated the intersection of Kant’s natural philosophy, metaphysics, and ethics. I’m indebted to the generosity of the Charlotte W. Newcombe Dissertation Fellowship for their support, as well as the Johns Hopkins Department of Philosophy for the Sachs Fellowship and the Arthur O. Lovejoy Fellowship for the completion of my dissertation.
I have published on Kant, Fichte, and Hegel. My work has appeared in venues such as Inquiry, Journal of Transcendental Philosophy, Teaching Philosophy, Kantian Review, Hegel-Studien, and Hegel Bulletin. For published versions of my publications in PDF format, click here.
