About me

I'm an associate professor in philosophy and director of the Centre for Digital Philosophy at Western University (previously known as the University of Western Ontario). I obtained my PhD in philosophy at the Australian National University under the supervision of David Chalmers, Daniel Stoljar, and Frank Jackson. I also hold a BSc in computer science from l'Université Laval.
