I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Ball State University. I received my PhD in Philosophy from Villanova University in May 2014. My dissertation was titled “Marx and the Metaphysics of Production.” My research focuses on Marx and post-Marxism, image.pngespecially on the notions of production and labor, as well as contemporary feminism and gender studies. I am Co-Editor of the Radical Philosophy Review, the journal of the Radical Philosophy Association, and my publications include “Community-Engaged Learning and Precollege Philosophy During Neoliberalism” (Teaching Philosophy 42:4), The Weariness of Democracy: Confronting the Failure of Liberal Democracy  (co-edited with Obed Frausto and Jason Powell, Palgrave Macmillan, 2019), and “Castoriadis, Marx, and the Critique of Productivism” (Telos 174).  At Ball State, I teach Introduction to Philosophy, as well as classes on contemporary philosophy, especially 19th- and 20th-century continental philosophy and critical theory. I am also co-advisor to the Philosophy Club and the director of the precollege Philosophy Outreach Project.
