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

My specialisation is moral and political philosophy. I'm particularly interested in the ethics of roles in social institutions and the tension between liberal moderation and radical aspiration.

I am also an experienced meeting chair, currently serving as the Speaker of Council for the University of Toronto Faculty Association.
