I am a PhD candidate in Philosophy at Villanova University
and recently a 2015—2016 Mellon Research Fellow at the
Humanities Institute of The New York Botanical Garden.
My research explores the history and continuing significance of the concepts that define the organic world through the intersections of eighteenth-century philosophy and life science,
contemporary philosophy of biology, and environmental ethics.
