Jonathan joined Selkirk College in 2016 because he wanted to work at a teaching-focused institution while living in a community that prioritizes quality of life. Before moving to the Kootenays, he was at large in Texas completing a Ph.D. and serving as a Clinical Ethics Fellow in various hospitals. His primary academic interests include questions in Biomedical Ethics (e.g., how should we in medicine “treat” the dying process?), Moral Psychology (e.g., what is the role of empathy in making moral judgments?), and Existentialism (e.g., how are we responsible for shaping who we become?). Jonathan’s non-academic interests include hiking in the mountains, playing hockey, reading beautifully bound books, and brewing and baking.
