I am a PhD student at the University of Notre Dame, specializing in medieval philosophy and philosophy of mind. I also have interests in metaphysics, ethics, philosophy of science, and ancient philosophy.

My research focuses mainly on understanding Aquinas’ account of confused cognition, though I have broader interests in philosophy of mind (both contemporary and historical), scientific modeling, and Aristotelian ethics.

I obtained an MA in philosophy from Purdue University in 2022, and BA degrees in chemistry and classics from Cornell University in 2013. I have taught chemistry and Latin at the high school level, and I have conducted chemical research in nanoscience, semiconductors, and electrochemistry.
