I recently received my PhD in philosophy from Purdue University (Dissertation: "'It is of the nature of reason to regard things as necessary, not contingent': A Defense of Spinoza's Necessitarianism"). My AoS is in early modern philosophy, Spinoza, and metaphysics, and my AoC is in Ethics, Social and Political Philosophy, and Philosophy of Religion. I've taught intro courses to philosophy, ethics, and global moral problems, and am passionate about making education fun and engaging for students. I am currently Visiting Instructor for the Cornerstone Integrated Liberal Arts Program in the College of Liberal Arts at Purdue University.
