I wrote my Ph.D. dissertation on Aristotle and Plotinus, on the question of the simplicity of Intellect. I specialize in Ancient Philosophy, especially in studies on Aristotle and the Neo-Aristotelian tradition, such as Alexander of Aphrodisias, as well as on Plotinus and the Neoplatonic tradition. I have also worked considerably on German Idealism, especially Hegel. My M.A. Thesis consisted of a study of Hegel’s attempt at resolving the Aristotelian aporia of the separation of Intellect in Aristotle’s De Anima III.4-5 and Metaphysics L. 7-9.

I am currently completing a paper on Montesquieu, and also in the process of editing my manuscript on Aristotle and Plotinus for publication.
