I previously completed an MPhil in Ancient Philosophy at King’s College London, where my primary supervisor was Prof. M.M. McCabe, and my secondary supervisors were Dr. Raphael Woolf and Dr. Joachim Aufderheide. My dissertation was titled ‘The Cyrenaics on the Anticipation of Pain’, and was examined by Prof. George Boys-Stones and Prof. Voula Tsouna-McKirahan. My BA (Hons) was in Philosophy at the University of Toronto.

I teach Ancient Philosophy, Moral Philosophy, Ethics, and Gender & Philosophy at Oxford, King’s College London, and King’s Summer School. I hold a PGCAP (Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice) in Higher Education from King’s Learning Institute, and am a Fellow of the HEA (Higher Education Association) in the UK.

I am the Editorial Assistant for The British Journal for the History of Philosophy under the direction of Prof. Michael Beaney, and Assistant to the Ancient Commentators on Aristotle Project, under the direction of Prof. Richard Sorabji, CBE. I am an Assistant Examiner for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme for Philosophy, and an Admissions Interviewer in Philosophy for University College, Oxford.

I have published a Review of David Wolfsdorf’s Pleasure in Ancient Greek Philosophy (Cambridge University Press, 2013) for Bryn Mawr Classical Review (November 2013), and the ‘Hedonism’ entry in The Encyclopedia of Criminal Justice Ethics (August 2014). I currently have two articles under review by journals.
