Bio

I have worked extensively on 19th and 20th century European philosophy, with special emphasis on the philosophy of art and phenomenology (particularly, regarding the works of Nietzsche and Heidegger).  I received my M.A. in Philosophy from Boston University in 2013, writing my thesis on Nietzschean theories of  governance.  I currently organize and run the multidisciplinary Boston University Aesthetics and Philosophy of Art Reading Group and I am a member of the Boston Phenomenology Circle.  I have been awarded several research grants to further my work in philosophy and I am currently writing my dissertation on the phenomenology of time-consciousness in art.  I also “dabble” in ethical theory and moral psychology, particularly, regarding comparability problems as they pertain theories of well-being, and the relationship between value and time-consciousness.  I enjoy metal, trance, mountain climbing, swimming, video games, reading about physics and astronomy, and eating exceptionally hot peppers.
