Having completed her Ph.D. in 2012 at the University of California Los Angeles, Sarah joined the Carleton faculty as a Visiting Assistant Professor in the fall of 2012. After surviving her first winter in Minnesota, this Arizona native joined the department as a tenure-track member in the fall of 2013. Sarah's interests include ancient Greek philosophy and science, ethics and aesthetics. Her current research is on Plato's ethics and aesthetics, the dramatic aspects of Plato's dialogues, philosophy of regret, and Aristotle's natural philosophy. When she is not pondering philosophy with Carleton students, Sarah can be found mountain or gravel biking, rock climbing, skate skiing, barefoot running or discovering new ways to stay warm outdoors in the winter (including wearing running shoes). Sarah lives in Northfield with her beagle-Chihuahua, Teddy - a frequent patron of the bald spot, the Arb and Carls' laps.
