I am currently a PhD student in philosophy at Université de Montréal, Canada. Before that, I did my BA and MA in philosophy at Concordia University. I’m specializing in the areas of phenomenology, philosophy of perception, and moral philosophy, but I’m also working in the areas of philosophy of love and philosophy of trauma. My work is currently divided into three projects. My thesis, so far, is about retracing the phenomenon of moral perception within the phenomenological tradition, especially in Husserl and Merleau-Ponty’s work, as well as drawing connections with pre-perceptual moral meaning and normativity in extreme cases of morality. Second, I am interested in the philosophical input of post-traumatic stress disorders and how triggers of PTSD can be self-normative. The third project I have is a paper I’m currently writing which is about making philosophy of love more inclusive for psychological disorders by using phenomenology (especially Merleau-Ponty) to describe romantic love as a kind of perception. I’ve also published poetry and non-fiction prose in journals across Canada and the UK. Please feel free to send me an email if you’d like to collaborate or talk about any of this: firstname.lastname@example.org.
