About

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Philosophy and the Women’s Studies Program at the University of Waterloo. I also serve as the book review editor for the IJFAB: International Journal of Feminist Approaches to Bioethics. I specialize in feminist philosophy, the political thought of Hannah Arendt, and applied ethics, particularly global issues in reproductive ethics and environmental philosophy. My other interests include the philosophy of technology, sexuality studies, and phenomenology.I plan on re-doing this webpage over the summer of 2016, so I appreciate your patience if information is missing!

Previously, I was the Sophia M. Libman NEH Professor of the Humanities at Hood College in Frederick, Maryland with an appointment in the Women’s and Gender Studies Program and the Department of Philosophy & Religious Studies. I completed my PhD in philosophy in December 2012 from Western University, where I was also a member of the Rotman Institute of Philosophy. I also completed an MA in philosophy from Georgia State University in 2008.

Apart from my academic studies, I am interested in vegan living, yoga, speculative and science fiction, gaming, and my feline companion Simone.
