DPhil Philosophy Student

University of Oxford

Welcome to my website. I am currently a DPhil student in Philosophy at Balliol College, University of Oxford. My main research interest is Ancient Philosophy, with a focus on Plato and Aristotle. In the past, I have worked on the relationship between philosophy and rhetoric, theory of argumentation, and ethics. My DPhil project explores Plato’s philosophical use of the concept of the oikeion, and connects Plato’s ethics to Aristotelian and Stoic ethical naturalism.
