I’ve taught English as a foreign language in Milan and Oxford, as well as numerous philosophy courses at Baruch College, ranging from Philosophy of Psychology to Philosophy of Sex and Love and Computer Ethics.  I currently give supervisions in philosophy at Downing College as a Bye Fellow and Teaching Fellow, and at Corpus Christi College as a Philosophy Preceptor.
