I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in philosophy (ABD) at the University of Calgary, Canada.  My doctoral research focuses on Friedrich Nietzsche’s views on human freedom and its relationship to fate.  In particular, I am interested in his idea of amor fati (love of fate) understood as an admirable attitude towards life that is conducive to, not in conflict with, a distinctly “Nietzschean” concept of freedom.

My broader academic interests include: history of philosophy (ancient and 18th/19th century German philosophy); free will/moral responsibility and agency; professional ethics (business ethics and philosophy of law); ethical theory; aesthetics (philosophy of dance); and women’s studies.

I have taught undergraduate philosophy classes in business ethics and the philosophy of law at the University of Calgary.  Upcoming courses include an introductory course in women’s studies in winter 2017.
