My work explores Aristotle's distinctive conceptions of logic and knowledge. I also study how his ideas influenced subsequent philosophers, and what contemporary philosophers might learn from them. In my dissertation I focus on his Posterior Analytics. I have secondary interests in German Idealism (especially Hegel) and Medieval Philosophy (especially Robert Kilwardby and early scholasticism).
