I received my BA in Philosophy from McMaster University and my MA from the University of Ottawa. I attended University of Oxford for my DPhil in Philosophy, under the supervision of Derek Parfit, Quassim Cassam, and Paul Snowdon. I taught at Oxford for several years before returning to Canada to take up my current post at Laurier.
My areas of research include: personal identity theory; the metaphysics and value of death; illness; narrative views of the self; memory, trauma, and the works of W.G. Sebald. I have current research projects on the fear of death, and on the role of endings in conceptions of human life.
I have research opportunities for graduate students interested in personal identity, the self, narrative, and the metaphysics of death.
