I am an Assistant Professor (UK Lecturer) in Philosophy at Royal Holloway University of London. In spring 2019 (April-June), I will be an Alexander von Humboldt Alumni Fellow at the University of Tübingen. Previously, I was a SSHRC Postdoctoral Research Fellow at McGill University (2016-2018), a Lecturer at the University of Toronto Scarborough (2015-16) and an Alexander von Humboldt Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Bonn (2013-15). I completed my PhD in Philosophy at the University of Toronto in 2013 under the supervision of Paul Franks.
My research focuses on metaphysics and epistemology in Kantian and post-Kantian philosophy. I am particularly interested in transcendental arguments and transcendental idealism, the idea of deduction, the relation between freedom and nature, skepticism about normativity, finitude, mortality, nihilism, and the contingency of value.
My research appears in journal articles in History of Philosophy Quarterly, Dialogue: Canadian Philosophical Review, Idealistic Studies, Comparative and Continental Philosophy, PhaenEx: Journal of Existential and Phenomenological Theory and Culture, Northern European Journal of Philosophy, and Analecta Hermeneutica, and in book chapters in Idealism, Relativism and Realism: New Essays on Objectivity Beyond the Analytic-Continental Divide, Critique in German Philosophy: From Kant to Critical Theory, The Significance of Indeterminacy: Perspectives from Asian and Continental Philosophy, Rethinking Kant Volume 4, Continental Realism and its Discontents, The Palgrave Schelling Handbook, and The Bloomsbury Companion to Fichte. I have also edited and contributed chapters to two collections of essays: one on the philosophy of F.W.J. Schelling for Oxford University Press, and one on historical and contemporary inquiries into skepticism for Routledge.
