I am an Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Toronto. My areas of research include Kant and Post-Kantian Philosophy, German and British Romanticism, and Comparative Philosophy (esp. Classical Indian Philosophy). 

Articles of mine have appeared in such journals as Mind, Philosophers' Imprint, Philosophy and Phenomenological Research, Canadian Journal of Philosophy, European Journal of Philosophy, American Philosophical Quarterly, History of Philosophy Quarterly, British Journal for the History of Philosophy, and the Journal of the History of Philosophy

Much of my previous work pursued two broad themes: how conceptions of freedom and morality were intertwined during the late enlightenment period, especially in the work of Kant and his immediate successors. The results of this research were published in two books, Fichte’s Moral Philosophy (Oxford University Press, 2020) and Kant’s Justification of Ethics (Oxford University Press, 2021).

Currently, I am developing large-scale projects on (1) the metaphysics of freedom in Kant and post-Kantian philosophy; (2) the place of mythology in Anglo-German romanticism; and (3) the reception of classical Indian philosophy.
