I am a historian of philosophy with a primary focus on the work of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. I am currently Assistant Professor of Philosophy at New College of Florida, a public liberal arts honors college located in Sarasota, FL. I have taught at New College since 2018. In my research, I explore how Leibniz interacted with his contemporaries and framed conversations about philosophy, religion, and science as well as how historical developments influence our perception of his work today. As a teacher, I work with students to develop intellectual tools for understanding the world, and encourage them to connect philosophical discussions to their interests in other disciplines.
