I'm a writer and philosopher based in Vancouver, BC.

My new book What Love Is And What It Could Be will be published by Basic Books in January 2017.

I am Canada Research Chair in Philosophy at the University of British Columbia, Principal Investigator on the SSHRC funded project The Nature of Love, and Co-Investigator on the John Templeton Foundation funded project Knowledge Beyond Natural Science.

I studied at Trinity CollegeCambridge, and have worked at the University of St Andrews, the Australian National University, the University of Michigan, the University of Nottingham, and the University of Aberdeen. For more information about my academic career, see my full academic CV. I am now working towards an MFA in Creative Writing at the University of British Columbia.

I won one of the 2016 American Philosophical Association Public Philosophy Op Ed Contest awards.
