I am a PhD Candidate (ABD) in philosophy at the University of Calgary.  My dissertation is about pragmatist and idealist approaches to mind, reason, and normativity in nature. This means I spend a lot of time thinking about Kant, Hegel, Peirce, Dewey, Sellars, Brandom, and McDowell–among others! My dissertation supervisor is Professor Mark Migotti.

I held a Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship (2015-2018), and was also a Visiting Scholar at the University of Pittsburgh Department of Philosophy from September 2017 – March 2018, working with Professor Robert Brandom.

September 5, 2018 – How is it the Fall semester again already? Looking forward to finishing my dissertation and going on the job market this year, as well as attending some conferences and having a few papers appear.
March 5, 2018
– I’ve returned to Calgary and am settling in to finish my dissertation and get some papers sent out. I’m glad to be home, but being at Pitt was intellectually and personally enriching beyond my expectations. Thanks to everyone there who made me feel so welcome!
November 24, 2017 – I’m happy to say that my term as a Visiting Scholar at Pitt Philosophy has been extended until March 2018.
