I am Associate Professor at the Department of Philosophy of Providence College , and a Lecturer in Logic at Universität Basel. I was born in Colorado, grew up in rural Maine, and attended Colgate University, where I studied philosophy, German, and astronomy. After my B.A. I went off to Germany seeking adventure, and ended up – after studies of Classics and philosophy in Freiburg, Bonn, Lille, and Berlin – with a PhD from the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin in philosophy.
My research is on ancient philosophy and science, in particular on Aristotle. I am also interested in the history of analytic philosophy and social choice theory.
