I grew up in Christchurch, New Zealand, and took a degree at the University of Otago (B.A. Hons, 2013), before beginning the PhD Princeton in 2014.
My big interests are Homer, Aristotle (his natural science, logic, and metaphysics) and Presocratic philosophy. I think most philosophy, but especially that of pre-Classical Greece, is best read in the light of its wider cultural environment, so I try to spend as much time on early epic and lyric, Indo-European studies, oral traditions, and the history of technology as I do on more strictly philosophical research.
I've got some side interests in Nietzsche, A.N. Whitehead, and the philosophy of science. I also like learning new languages, so if you want to get a study group together for something unusual, please get in touch!
