I am an Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies at the Sage School of Philosophy, and Himan Brown Faculty Fellow in the Jewish Studies Program, Cornell University. I am a Board Member of the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy as a co-editor for the 17th century; an editor for PhilPapers; and an occasional editor for Philosophical Review. I'm also on the North American Spinoza Society Steering Committee.
