Asst. Teaching Professor (Northeastern University)
I am an Assistant Teaching Professor at Northeastern University. My research is on what I call Socrates' project of philosophical conversion -- that is, his project of using argument to try to lead his interlocutors to value wisdom more than anything else. I am interested in whether Plato thought such a project could succeed, and, if so, how. I thus investigate the intersections between Platonic moral psychology and Socratic method. I was a participant at the National Endowment for the Humanities "Reviving Philosophy as a Way of Life" Workshop in 2018, and I am very interested in identifying both the particular content of philosophy as a way of life and the particular pedagogical approach of teaching philosophy in this manner.
