I am a sessional lecturer in philosophy at the University of British Columbia and on faculty in the mathematics department at the British Columbia Institute of Technology. I do research in formal epistemology (quantitative partial belief representation) with an additional interest in Nietzsche studies and legal positivism. I primarily teach Philosophy and Literature (PHIL 375), pursuing topics such as hermeneutics and Central European writers; and Philosophy of Law (PHIL 338) mostly on legal positivism and Marxist approaches to law.
