I am a PhD student and Teaching Fellow in the Department of Government at Harvard University, specializing in political theory and the history of political thought.
My research interests include: Jewish political thought; early modern philosophy (especially Spinoza); democratic theory (including that of Rousseau and Tocqueville); and the relation between modern liberal democracy and religion. I have published on Hermann Cohen's liberalism, and given invited talks on Spinoza and Tocqueville (see my CV for details).
At Harvard, I have served as Head Teaching Fellow in the Harvard College Program in General Education (in courses on bioethics, and on religion and American politics), and as a Teaching Fellow in the Government Department's survey of the history of political philosophy from Plato to Nietzsche.
Prior to coming to Harvard, I received my BA (Hons) with high distinction from the University of Toronto in Political Science, classical Greek and Jewish Studies, and my MA magna cum laude in Religious Studies from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
