Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.
Biography / Academic Background
I received my PhD in philosophy from the University of Toronto where, in 2006, I was a member of the collaborative program in ancient and medieval philosophy.
Research Interests / Ongoing Projects
I have 2 main areas of research: ancient Greek philosophy and queer/feminist philosophy.
I am currently working on the intersections of feminist and queer philosophy in relation to gender and autonomy.
Student Opportunities / Supervising
I am willing to supervise graduate students in ancient Greek philosophy, feminist philosophy or queer philosophy.
