Welcome to my webpage. Included in this webpage is information about my research, academic work, supervisors, and class/tutorial information.
I am currently wrapping up my dissertation in the department of Philosophy at York University. I am happy to announce that I have recently accepted an Assistant Professor position at Florida Gulf Coast University. You can find out more about the Philosophy program at FGCU and more about my wonderful colleagues.
My main areas of research are multiculturalism, political theory, and legal philosophy. I earned a BA (Hons) and MA from McMaster University. My thesis entitled "Liberalism and Minority Rights"dealt specifically with the issue of faith-based arbitration's potential place in a liberal democracy.
My PhD dissertation, 'Uneasy Relations: Liberalism, Minorities, and The Significance of Disagreement', explores the relationship between Rawls's Political Liberalism and Minority Rights and the means by which to mediate the relationship between comprehensive doctrines and liberal values.
I am a co-author of the newly released (2012) book entitled Ethics and the Public Service: Trust, Integrity, and Democracy and also have several other forthcoming publications. For more information see my Research and Other Activities links
I am also a graduate fellow at McLaughlin College (York University) and hold a Fellowship at the Nathanson Center (Osgoode Law School) and the York Center for Practical Ethics.
