My work is primarily about metaphysics and philosophy of mind in modern European philosophy. In my dissertation I argue that Mary Shepherd's theory of causation is best read in the context of the British Emergentist tradition, and I develop a model for understanding Shepherd's view as an emergentist account of causation. This model captures her central metaphysical commitments, as well as explaining her response to Hume's causal theory.

I joined the PhD program at NYU in 2018 after a B.A. in Political Science and Economics at the University of Winnipeg and an M.A. in Philosophy at the University of Toronto.
