Special guest

Prior to my current position at Northeastern, I was a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow at Carnegie Mellon University’s Philosophy Department, with secondary affiliation with the Machine Learning Department, working with David Danks and Zack Lipton. I received my PhD in Philosophy from the University of British Columbia, where I was advised by Christopher Mole and Evan Thompson. During my studies at UBC, I was a graduate research fellow at The W. Maurice Young Centre for Applied Ethics, an Instructor in the Cognitive Systems Program, and a UBC Public Scholar. Before philosophy, I did a bachelor’s degree in electrical and biomedical engineering at McMaster University, and a master’s in medical biophysics at the University of Toronto, during which I also worked as a researcher at the department of diagnostic imaging at the SickKids hospital in Toronto. Aside from academic work, I enjoy football (or soccer if you prefer), boxing and literature. Some of my translations and poems have appeared in The Antigonish Review, Frogpond, and Haiku 21: an anthology of contemporary English-language haiku.
