I’m an Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy at York University. I’m also an Adjunct Research Fellow in the Department of Philosophy at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.

My research and teaching interests lie at the intersection of philosophy of mind and action, artificial intelligence, metaphysics, and ethics.

In November 2019, I was awarded a DECRA (Discovery Early Career Researcher Award) by the Australian Research Council for a 3-year, full-time research project on agency and artificial intelligence.
