Visiting Assistant Professor
I specialize in early modern philosophy, with current research on early modern metaphysics and skepticism. My primary focus is Blaise Pascal's philosophy and I have published on Descartes and Hobbes. My other scholarly interests include philosophical pedagogy and feminist history of philosophy, e.g, virtual reality in the classroom, and Mary Shepherd's metaphysics. I am currently part of a collaborative project examining Jacqueline Pascal's theory of personal autonomy.
As a recipient of the Kristeller-Popkin Fellowship, I will spend the summer of 2021 in the archives of La Flèche, France, and Edinburgh, Scotland, investigating the French origins of Hume's solutions to skepticism.
