I did my PhD in Philosophy at the University of Toronto, and have taught previously at the University of Toronto and the University of South Florida. I am a current member of the Interdisciplinary Centre for Climate Change at the University of Waterloo, and I am a former Chair of the Ethics Committee for the Green Party of Canada. Please see my personal website for a more detailed profile.
My current research extends across three fields:
I am willing to supervise students who want to work in environmental ethics, the ethics and politics of sustainability, or the history of modern philosophy (Descartes to Heidegger).
