I write about the problems and tradeoffs that arise when technology changes the possibilities of social and political organization, or disrupts existing orders. In doing so, I aim to draw from the history of political thought in order to distinguish the modern context from similar historical periods of transformation. I am also interested in analyzing the writing of present-day activists, or non-canonical thinkers, through a historical or canonical lens. My research interests include liberalism, the philosophy of education, democratic theory, and the intersection of literature and politics.
