Welcome to my website! I am the Thomas W. Smith Postdoctoral Fellow at the Matthew J. Ryan Center, housed at Villanova University, and I recently earned my Ph.D. in political theory from Michigan State University. My dissertation examines women’s moral and intellectual education in Rousseau’s novel, Julie, but my research more generally explores liberal education in modern political thought. Please see my other pages for more information. Thanks for visiting!
