Welcome


I'm Alexandra, a Canada Graduate Scholar and philosophy PhD Candidate at the University of Toronto.

I work primarily on the phenomenology of love, especially romantic love. I have additional interests in ethics and aesthetics broadly speaking, as well as a burgeoning interest in the philosophy of disability.

Outside of philosophy, I'm a passionate advocate for mental health and disability visibility in Academia. I am the co-founder and former co-chair of the department's Mental Health & Disability Caucus, a member of the School of Graduate Studies (SGS) Mental Health Advisory Committee, and a member of the Faculty of Arts and Science Cultures of Care Network.
