I am an Associate Professor at the University of Western Ontario, where I am jointly appointed to the Department of Philosophy and the Faculty of Law. I received my B.A. from McGill University (1990), my Ph.D. from MIT (1998), and my J.D. from the University of Toronto (2006). During the 2006-7 academic year, I clerked at the Supreme Court of Canada and currently serve as Associate Editor of the Canadian Journal of Law & Jurisprudence.
My primary teaching and research interests are in philosophy of law and metaphysics.
