Biography
  • B.A., Honours, University of Toronto

My main research interests are in philosophy of law, specifically the issues arising out of the Hart-Dworkin debate, as well as questions regarding judicial interpretation. In Ancient Philosophy, I’m particularly interested in Plato, Aristotle, and Cicero, especially their ethics, politics, and accounts of rhetoric. I’m also fairly invested in action theory and the old (and recent) debates on free will and moral responsibility.
