Assistant Professor of Philosophy
I am a faculty member at the University of Victoria. My research is on the nature and value of emotions in moral, social, and political life. I graduated with a Ph.D. in Philosophy from Dalhousie University in 2017 and, while writing my dissertation, was a Residential Dissertation Fellow in the Hope & Optimism: Conceptual and Empirical Investigations Project at Cornell University. I am currently writing about hope, forgiveness, despair, and emotional barriers to action.
