Annie is a PhD student in Northwestern's Department of Philosophy, specializing in Ancient Greek Philosophy, particularly the moral philosophy of Plato and Aristotle. Her work examines Plato's view of poetry and the role he thinks it plays in our moral lives. She is interested in questions concerning whether art and storytelling can offer us legitimate pathways to understanding what is good and moral, or whether reasoned discourse should be considered the only route to such knowledge. Her other interests include reading Annie Dillard, hiking in National Parks, and spending time with her pet rabbit.
