I am Professor of Philosophy at the University of Waterloo. I work mostly in ethics, philosophy of economics, epistemology, and philosophy of sex and love.

My current research topics include:

  • 1) the role of ethical values in optimality methods like cost-benefit-analysis
  • 2) normative analysis of mathematization and formalization in economics
  • 3) racism and discrimination in the use of algorithms

In the past, I’ve also written on moral reasoning, value pluralism, moral dilemmas, economics imperialism, economic theories of love and altruism, sexual objectification, theories of truth, ambivalence, and other topics.
