I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Philosophy of the University of Alberta. I am an academic philosopher and a trained lawyer interested in social epistemology, global justice, and Indigenous philosophy. I have a background in the history of Western philosophy with expertise in early modern epistemology. I received my Ph.D. in Philosophy from McMaster University in 2021 where I worked with Professor Wil Waluchow.
Before taking my position at the University of Alberta, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Extending New Narratives in the History of Philosophy project under the supervision of Professor Lisa Shapiro.
My ongoing research, continuing my project at my postdoctoral fellowship, is the development of methodological tools to allow Western philosophy to engage with Indigenous thought. I am focused on the reconstruction of 16th-century Andean metaphysical and epistemological concepts by exploring the Huarochiri Manuscript under a philosophical lens.
