About Me

I'm a faculty member in the Department of Philosophy at Langara College and Researcher in the Department of Philosophy, Classics, History of Art and Ideas at the University of Oslo.  

My primary research areas are in ethics (especially biomedical ethics), social and political philosophy, and philosophy of economics. My work concerns tensions between individual autonomy and the public good, issues of social cooperation and coordination, and democratic rights.

Currently, I work on the Norwegian Research Council-funded project “Salient Solutions: Responding Ethically to the Attention Crisis,” where I am the principal researcher. I focus on the ethics of social media, the attention economy, and digital technologies, through the lens of attention and salience.

I received my PhD in philosophy in 2012 from the University of Toronto. I have held Postdoctoral Research Fellowships at Novel Tech Ethics in the Faculty of Medicine at Dalhousie University and at the Centre for the Study of Mind in Nature (CSMN) at the University of Oslo in Norway.
