About Me

I am a philosopher at Douglas College. Previously, I was at the University of Vienna on the ERC project “The Normative and Moral Foundations of Group Agency”. And before that, I did a PhD at the CUNY Graduate Center, a MA at the University of Vienna, and a BA at the University of British Columbia, all in philosophy.

My philosophical interests include philosophy of action, ethics, social and political philosophy, philosophy of social science, and experimental philosophy. Right now, I'm working on a view of collective action based on the idea that when people form a collective intention, they mess with each other’s minds in an obligation-generating way.

Published papers and a brief description of my current and future research are available on the research page. A list of courses taught and a description of my other pedagogical activities are available on the teaching page. Recent news is below. My CV and email address are here.
