My work is on foundational topics in the philosophy of language and mind, such as the constitution of meaning and content, the character of linguistic agency, and the normativity and objectivity distinctive of language and thought.  I am also interested in broader questions regarding our nature as beings whose thinking and acting are governed by the appreciation of reasons.  I am especially concerned with the way in which the later work of Donald Davidson bears on these topics.  You may learn more about my research here.

I am appointed as Assistant Professor (limited-term) in the Department of Philosophy at Concordia University in Montreal.  Previously, I was Harper-Schmidt Fellow and Collegiate Assistant Professor at the University of Chicago.   

I received my MA and PhD from York University in Toronto and my BA from the University of Bucharest.
