I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the De Wulf-Mansion Centre for Ancient, Medieval and Renaissance Philosophy at KU Leuven, Belgium. I work on the project called "Hylomorphism Whole: 1300--1330," which, as its title suggests, aims to study medieval hylomorphism without its usual compartmentalization. See more about the project here.

In the last few years, I have been a kind of "wandering academic": after getting my PhD in 2017 from Fordham University, I taught philosophy and mathematics at Conception Seminary College in Missouri, then moved back to the East Coast to take up a postdoc position at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, and then back to the midwest again as a Ruth Norman Halls Research Associate in philosophy at Indiana University in Bloomington, working on the Richard Rufus Project.

Before all this wandering began, I grew up and lived in Budapest, Hungary, where I attended ELTE University in philosophy and mathematics, and then got an MA in medieval studies at Central European University.

When I am not doing philosophy, I enjoy hiking, woodworking, and listening to and playing 14--18th-century music.
