I am an Assistant Professor, Teaching Stream (fixed term) in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Toronto Scarborough. I defended my Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Toronto in 2022.

I specialize in ethics and political philosophy. My research is centred on the ethics of roles, especially roles in business and public service. I am also interested in the conditions for institutional legitimacy and the aspirations of radical politics.

I am the meeting chair for the University of Toronto Faculty Association.
