I received my PhD and MA in philosophy from the University of Western Ontario in 1996 and 1987 respectively. Prior to graduate work, I did a Bachelor of Applied Arts (film) at Ryerson Polytechnical Institute.
In addition to teaching at Laurier, I have taught at the University of Western Ontario, Okanagan University College, the University of Guelph, and the University of Ghana, Legon. In addition to my teaching in the Communication Studies and Philosophy departments, I have also taught in Film Studies, Fine Arts and History.
My main areas of interest are aesthetics and philosophy of technology. In aesthetics, my main research has been in film and photography as these relate to representation in the arts, but I have also published on literature and representation. In technology, I am interested in how technology changes the nature of ethics and am currently working on a book on technology and ethics.
I have supervised MPhil and PhD students at the University of Ghana in areas of ethics, political philosophy and epistemology.
I am willing to supervise graduate students in the areas of aesthetics (particularly film and photography) and technology (particularly the intersection of technology with ethics and/or human self-conception) should the opportunity present itself.
