I'm currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Toronto, where I received my Ph.D. in 2016, and taught as Lecturer, 2018–2020.
Previously, I was Lecturer and SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Philosophy at UC Berkeley.
My research is focused on understanding subjectivity and its place in the natural world. My work draws on Kant, and the history of post-Kantian philosophy, in order to frame and address problems in metaphysics and philosophy of mind. One of my central aims is to show that understanding the natural conditions which make the world available to us requires us to reconceive nature along the lines explored by phenomenologists.
I talk a bit about my work in this interview with Into the Coast.
