Research Interests

My research interests are in ancient philosophy (in the east and west), early modern philosophy, political philosophy, and metaethics. In particular, the bulk of my research is in Spinoza, Daoism, and political realism in political philosophy. I am also interested in environmental political theory and ethics.
