About Me

I’m a political theorist/philosopher and am a PhD Candidate in Political Science at Western University. At Western I’m the recipient of the F. M. Barnard Scholarship in Political Philosophy.

My research is primarily focused on normative questions within contemporary political theory and political philosophy that fall on the intersection of philosophy, politics, and economics – especially questions about economic justice and the philosophy of work. I also have research interests in theories of justice more broadly, political liberalism, and urban political theory. My dissertation aims to incorporate meaningful work within a theory of justice, and is creatively titled: Justice and Meaningful Work.

My work has been published in Social Theory and Practice, and Urban Affairs Review.
