I am Professor and Chair 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 focuses on the ethics of formalization and quantification. 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 economic theories of sex, love, and altruism, economics imperialism, moral reasoning, value pluralism, moral dilemmas, sexual objectification, theories of truth, ambivalence, and other topics.
