My research specializations are in philosophy of law and political philosophy. My current research focuses on political authority, social justice, criminal law, and punishment. I have published work on the philosophy of intellectual property and I am particularly interested in Kant’s legal and political philosophy.
Before coming to Loyola, I was lecturer in philosophy at the University of Toronto at Mississauga.
