I am a PhD candidate (ABD) in philosophy at the University of Calgary. My dissertation is about pragmatist and idealist approaches to resolving the apparent tension between the nature of intentionality and a plausible commitment to (some sort of) a naturalistic worldview. This means I spend a lot of time thinking about Kant, Hegel, Peirce, Dewey, Wittgenstein, Sellars, McDowell, Brandom, and Price, among others. My dissertation supervisor is Mark Migotti.

I currently hold a Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship (2015-2018), and will be a visiting scholar at the University of Pittsburgh Department of Philosophy in Fall 2017, under the sponsorship of Robert Brandom.
