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) and dabble in Nietzsche and Kafka studies. I primarily teach Philosophy and Literature (PHIL 375), pursuing topics such as hermeneutics, personal identity, and Central European writers.
