I have a wide range of interests, including environmental philosophy, applied ethics, photography, acrylic painting, and craft beer. I recently completed a Ph.D (Philosophy) at the University of Waterloo under the supervision of Dr. Brian Orend. My thesis ("The Ethics of Nuclear Waste in Canada: Risks, Harms, and Unfairness'') analzyed the ethical framework for the long-term disposal of nuclear waste in Canada. After writing my doctorate I developed a five-course certificate program in Health Care Ethics for George Brown College.
While in graduate school, and afterwards, I had the privilege of teaching several courses in ethics and philosophy of mind. My past courses, often taught several times, include: "Ethics and the Life Sciences," "Bioethics," "Business and Professional Ethics," "Moral Issues," "Introduction to Ethical Theory," and "Philosophy of Mind," among others.
I am currently working on papers in environmental philosophy. (Abstracts of papers will be posted soon). One of my recent papers, ``Framing Ethical Acceptability: A Problem with Nuclear Waste in Canada'' (2011), was published in the journal Science and Engineering Ethics.
