About Me

I’m a political theorist 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 expertise is in contemporary political theory and political philosophy. In particular, economic justice and the political theory of work, theories of justice more broadly, and political liberalism. My dissertation incorporates meaningful work within a liberal theory of justice. It is creatively titled: Justice and Meaningful Work.

My work has been published or is forthcoming in venues such as: Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy, Journal of Ethics and Social Philosophy, and Social Theory and Practice.
