I'm an associate professor of philosophy at the University of Florida. My research focuses on modern philosophy. I've been looking at the philosophy of Thomas Hobbes, in particular his materialism, and the reactions of other modern philosophers to Hobbes's views. As the project has developed, I've been looking more at Leibniz's criticisms of materialism, and at the work of other early modern materialists, such as John Toland and Margaret Cavendish.
