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 and a plausible commitment to naturalism. 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). My term as a Visiting Scholar at the University of Pittsburgh Department of Philosophy is from September to December 2017, working with Professor Robert Brandom.
