I am a G5 studying political theory and intellectual history. My current work examines the emergence of liberal ideas of government, the relationship between ecclesiastical and political jurisdiction in early modern Europe, and democratic processes. I am happy to advise theses on most topics in political theory, in particular those involving religion and politics, early modern and modern political theory, American political thought, democratic political theory and ethics, and ancient/medieval political thought. I've taught for Gov 1060 & 1061 (Ancient and Medieval Political Philosophy and History of Modern Political Thought) and for Tech Ethics, and I've advised an undergrad thesis on Abraham Lincoln and theories of executive power. As an advisor, I value helping students organize their research, providing conceptual feedback on the structure and analysis of a longer piece of work, and offering detailed stylistic/grammatical edits as needed at the end of the process.
