Research Description

I study the ancient past to shed light on contemporary issues, specifically structural issues in concepts of nature, history, environmental policies, and health disparities.  I work in metaphysics, philosophy of physics, ecology, political ontology, and psychology.

Teaching Description

Co-wrote Penn State's Ethics of Climate Change interdomain course, which has been taught on four campuses, and will add it to World Campus. Teaches courses on the intersection between nature on the one hand and ancient physics, philosophy of technology, phenomenology, and political ontology on the other.
