Research

I have strong interests in the history of philosophy, primarily ancient philosophy (esp. Plato, Aristotle, and Pyrrhonian skepticism), as well as 19th and 20th century continental philosophy (esp. Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Foucault). I am interested in these historical figures and movements in their own right, as well as how they can be brought into conversation with contemporary debates in ethics, normative areas of epistemology, and the history and philosophy of science. More generally, my research focuses on questions concerning the value of knowledge, truth, and the epistemic norms that respond to these values, as well as how these values guide our actions and figure into our ethical concerns to live well.
