I am a Faculty Fellow in the Foundation Year Program at the University of King’s College, in Halifax, NS (Canada), and a Doctoral Candidate (ABD) in Philosophy at Emory University (Atlanta, USA). My current research engages Aristotle’s ethics, Maurice Merleau-Ponty’s phenomenology, and feminist care ethics to propose a model of ethical expertise on the basis of empathy.

I have an MA in Philosophy from Ryerson University (Toronto, ON). My Master’s Major Research Paper proposed an intersubjective conception of pain experiences on the basis of Merleau-Ponty’s phenomenological philosophy of embodiment. I received my BA (Honours) in Contemporary Studies & History from the University of King’s College (Halifax, NS).

My research interests are in Applied Ethics (especially Bioethics), Phenomenology (esp. Merleau-Ponty), Ancient Philosophy (especially Aristotle), Philosophy of Emotions, and Philosophy of Health & Illness.

When I’m not reading & writing, I can often be found baking, hiking, translating, making overly aspirational to-do lists, or designing posters for philosophy events.
