BIOGRAPHY

I have been teaching at St. Jerome’s University since 2003, after working at Université Laval, the University of Victoria, the Université du Québec à Chicoutimi, and the Collège de Sainte-Foy. My main research interests are in medieval philosophy, with a particular emphasis on Albert the Great, Thomas Aquinas, and Boethius.
