I’m an associate professor of political science at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. My interests are primarily in political philosophy, specifically: problems of rationality, the structure and properties of attractive normative theories, and questions of justice and legitimacy in urban and global governance. I have further interests in statistics and data science, and in adventure swimming and environmental stewardship. I am a founding member of the Great Lakes Trust. I received my doctorate in 2001 from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
