Jacquelyn completed her Combined Honours BSc in Environmental Science and Political Science at the University of King's College/Dalhousie University and her MA in Philosophy at the University of Western Ontario. Her current research is on how moral particularism, a moral theory that rejects the importance of moral principles, could provide moral guidance and produce sound moral judgements. Her research interests include moral philosophy, moral psychology, the philosophy of emotion, ancient philosophy, and the philosophy of Simone Weil, Iris Murdoch, and Plato.
