About

I recently completed my PhD in the philosophy department at Georgetown University writing my dissertation on how speech maintains oppression. Currently, I’m teaching in Toronto at Ryerson University and the University of Toronto. In August 2020 I will stat a postdoc at the Institute for the Study of Human Flourishing (as part of the Self, Virtue and Public Life initiative). Overall, my main interests are in the relationships between social/political structures and interpersonal ethics. This leads me to focus on concepts like oppression, domination, and exploitation. Some of my work is found on my PhilPeople page or my academia.edu page. I also work in bioethics, and have worked with the Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal for over five years, first as its Book Review Editor, then its Managing Editor.
