I am an independent scholar in Philosophy. I earned my Ph.D. in Philosophy from Queen’s University in 2015. I have worked as a Sessional Faculty member in the Philosophy Department at McMaster University, and I hold an M.Sc. in Philosophy & Public Policy from the London School of Economics & Political Science.
My philosophical interests are broad, touching on normative ethics, applied ethics, meta-ethics, political philosophy, history of early modern philosophy, personal identity, and the meaning of life and death. My research has focused on Hobbesian mutual advantage contractarianism (both its moral and political dimensions), rights, animal ethics, and the ethics of war and peace.
