Welcome

I am a Regular Instructor in the Department of Philosophy at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. My research interests are varied, but most of my publications are in Philosophy of Mind, Epistemology, and History of Philosophy. Before coming to KPU, I taught philosophy at York University and Trent University.

I have two PhDs, one in Philosophy of Mind from York University in Toronto and another in Philosophy of Signs from the University of Quebec in Montreal. I was an Adjunct Researcher in the Canada Research Chair in the Theory of Knowledge and did my Post-Doctoral work at the University of Helsinki, where I collaborated on a project called Diagrammatic Mind: Logical and Communicative Aspects of Iconicity. I am the Founder and Head Coach of the KPU Reason Mapping Team. I wrote the Oxford University Press annotated bibliography on “Semiotics,” the name given by John Locke for the least-known but most promising branch of philosophy ending in “-ics.”
