I am a Lecturer in the departments of Humanities and General Education at Mount Royal University, and in the department of Philosophy at the University of Calgary.

My work focuses on pragmatist approaches to intentionality and normativity in nature; that is, it is animated by the question of the place of mind and agency in the natural world. In particular, I focus on pragmatist views of conceptual understanding in the context of its importance to human mindedness in general, and at the intersection of the philosophical traditions of pragmatism, German Idealism, and analytic philosophy.
