Overview


I am a political theorist and classicist. Broadly speaking, my research concerns the intersections of ancient traditions and contemporary lives, especially where the past informs and cultivates critical thinking and transformative political practice. More specifically, I focus on Aristotle and his use in critical theories, especially Marx and post-Marxism. I joined the University of Wollongong in 2022 after three years at the University of Sydney as lecturer in political theory and then postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Classics and Ancient History. I received my PhD from the Department of Political Science at Northwestern University in 2021, where I was an Andrew W Mellon doctoral fellow and affiliate of the critical theory cluster. Since 2020, I have co-directed, with Dr Ben Brown (University of Sydney), the Critical Antiquities Network and its monthly online forum, the Critical Antiquities Workshop, which aim to connect scholars working between ancient traditions and contemporary critical theories.
