Hello, and welcome to my website! I am a Postdoctoral Fellow with the Lyceum Program in the Clemson Institute for the Study of Capitalism at Clemson University.
I specialize in Political Theory and American Politics, with a focus on normative questions relating to new technology and liberty. My dissertation examines threats to liberty identified by thinkers within the liberal tradition and expands their insights into the technological present. I also teach and research in Politics and Literature, particularly science fiction.
I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2023. I also received my MA in Political Science in 2019 from UW-Madison, and my BA from Patrick Henry College in Government and Political Philosophy in 2017. Outside of research and teaching, I enjoy the ukulele, reading fiction, and collecting thrift store art.
