Me in Brief
I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Toronto. My areas of philosophical interest are ethics (especially professional ethics and business ethics), political philosophy, and philosophy of economics. I specialized in Logic for my B.A. in Philosophy at Simon Fraser University, and have an M.A. in International Affairs from the Munk Centre for International Studies at the University of Toronto. My PhD dissertation, titled "Towards a Minimalist Definition of Professions," explicates the essence of professionalization, and draws on a game theoretic framework to analyze the role of professions in society. My thesis committee members are Joseph Heath (chair), David Dyzenhaus, and Arthur Ripstein.
I have been a member of the Canadian Business Ethics Research Network (CBERN) PhD Cluster since its inception in 2008. I have served as the PhD Cluster Leader, and helped organize two successful nation-wide PhD workshops. Currently, I am a member of the PhD Cluster steering committee.
In addition to my teaching and research employment at the University of Toronto, I have worked as a consultant for EthicScan, a Toronto-based corporate responsibility research house. Prior to my doctoral studies, I served as a Policy Analyst at the Ontario Ministry of Finance.
