I am a historian of philosophy with a focus on Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, and as of August, 2018, I will be Visiting Assistant Professor of Philosophy at New College of Florida. 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.
