I’m a Visiting Assistant Professor of Philosophy at NYU Abu Dhabi, currently writing a book that defends a new delineation of the distinction between power and freedom on the basis of a rational reconstruction of Michel Foucault’s philosophical work.

Questions about agency, identity, and the nature of norms are central to my research that draws broadly on European and Anglophone philosophical traditions alike. After earning my Ph.D. from the University of Chicago, I was a Bersoff Faculty Fellow at NYU’s Philosophy Department in 2016-18.
