I received my PhD in Philosophy at Yale in 2013 with a dissertation about Kierkegaard and Plato, supervised by Karsten Harries. Before then, I did undergraduate work in Philosophy, English, French and Russian at Lund University and UCLA. I've also studied German, Hebrew and Modern Greek.

From 2016-19 I was an assistant professor at National Research University Higher School of Economics, Moscow.

I now live in Warsaw and work as a freelance writer and a development- and copy-editor for academics and artists. I still occasionally contribute to academic journals and volumes.
