Biographical Sketch

My educational background includes a bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Western Ontario and a doctorate in philosophy from Saint Louis University.  I also hold a certificate in Medieval Studies.

I am a member of the Alpha Sigma Nu honor society and my hobbies include the outdoors, film, and traveling.

Research Interests

My research centres primarily in medieval metaphysics with a particular interest in the thought of both St. Thomas Aquinas and Rabbi Moses Maimonides, and the dialogue between Christian, Jewish and Islamic thinkers over the course of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries.

I am also interested in contemporary metaphysics, problems concerning analogy, the use of religious language, as well as issues of religious pluralism.

My teaching includes courses in both contemporary analytic philosophy and the history of philosophy, including recent courses in Philosophy of Science and Philosophy of Mind.
