Biography

Sandy Koullas graduated with a PhD in philosophy from Johns Hopkins. Her research interests are in ethics and African philosophy, with particular focus on practical reason, character, virtue, and the philosophy of love and relationships. Her chapter “Love, Practical Reason, and African Philosophy” in the Routledge Handbook on Love in Philosophy (edited by Adrienne Martin, 2019) showcases the intersection of some of these areas of interest.  

Dr. Koullas has taught in the University Writing Program since 2015, first as a graduate student instructor and then as a postdoctoral teaching fellow before joining the faculty as a full-time lecturer. Among her courses in the program are Exploring the Philosophy of Love and Introduction to Expository Writing. She loves teaching and working with students to build their confidence in new ways of thinking and expression. The pedagogical relationship is one she deeply values, and it contributes at least as much to her own learning as it does to the education of her students.
