I am broadly interested in ancient and contemporary epistemology and metaphysics. At the moment, I work mostly on epistemology and moral psychology in Socrates and Plato, which is the historical side of a dissertation project concerned with epistemic value. In particular, I am interested in the practical value of knowledge according to Socrates and Plato.

Some papers may be found here.
