about me

I am Associate Professor of Philosophy at the Sage School of Philosophy, Cornell University, and Himan Brown Faculty Fellow in the Jewish Studies Program there.

My published work has focused on the metaphysics, epistemology, and philosophy of mind in the early modern period, especially Spinoza, Cavendish, and Descartes.

I am also a Board Member of the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, as a co-editor for the 17th century; an editor for PhilPapers; and a Board Member and occasional editor of Philosophical Review. I'm also affiliated with The Groningen Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Thought in the Netherlands and I'm on the North American Spinoza Society Steering Committee.
