I am a PhD candidate (ABD) in philosophy at the University of Calgary, and a Visiting Scholar at the University of Pittsburgh Department of Philosophy. My dissertation is about pragmatist and idealist approaches to resolving the apparent tension between the normativity of intentionality/content and a plausible commitment to naturalism. This means I spend a lot of time thinking about Kant, Hegel, Peirce, Dewey, C.I. Lewis, Wittgenstein, Sellars, McDowell, Brandom, and Price…among others! My dissertation supervisor is Professor Mark Migotti.
I currently hold a Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship (2015-2018). My term as a Visiting Scholar at the University of Pittsburgh Department of Philosophy is from September 2017 to March 2018, working with Professor Robert Brandom.
November 24, 2017 – I’m happy to say that my term as a Visiting Scholar at Pitt Philosophy has been extended until March 2018.
September 5, 2017 – I have begun my term as a Visiting Scholar at the University of Pittsburgh Department of Philosophy.
May 31, 2017 – I presented my paper “A Problem for Huw Price’s Pragmatism” at the Canadian Philosophical Association Congress at Ryerson University in Toronto.
