I was born and grew up in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.  For my undergraduate degree at McGill University, I completed a major in English literature and minors in computer science and cognitive science.  I then transitioned into philosophy and completed a Masters degree at Tufts University.  I completed my Ph. D in philosophy at Rutgers University in 2013, writing my dissertation on the nature of clinical delusions, and I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow at the Swiss Center for the Affective Sciences at the University of Geneva, Switzerland.

I occasionally blog at the Imperfect Cognitions Research Network.  (1, 2, 3)
