Personal Statement

I am a PhD student focused on ancient and early modern political thought. I am particularly interested in the role of pride- and dignity-related phenomena in the work of Plato, Machiavelli and Rousseau, and in the question of authorship as a political act. I recently finished my MA thesis on Audience, Narration, and Social Power in Repubic Book I.

Before coming to Berkeley, I received my B.A. from University of Toronto.
