I'm currently Assistant Professor, Teaching Stream, and Tricampus TA Coordinator in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Toronto, where I received my Ph.D. in 2016.
Previously, I was Lecturer and SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Philosophy at UC Berkeley.
My research is aimed at understanding and rehabilitating post-Kantian philosophy in order to develop it today as a viable mode of philosophical inquiry.
On the one hand, this involves scholarship in the history of philosophy focused on Kant, German Idealism and Romanticism, Neo-Kantianism, phenomenology, and existentialism; on the other hand, it involves the ongoing development of the insights contained in these post-Kantian traditions in the form of systematic philosophical methods and positions that can sustain contemporary scrutiny.
I talk a bit about my work in this interview with Into the Coast.
