Jackie Sullivan

Jackie Sullivan is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy and a member of the Rotman Institute of Philosophy. Her research is situated at the intersection of philosophy of neuroscience, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of science. Jackie is also leading this year’s Undergraduate Mentorship Program in which interested students in their third and fourth year are assigned to a faculty mentor working in the area of philosophy they are most interested in. Students can then meet with their mentor periodically during their third and fourth years in the program to discuss their course of study and career goals following graduation.
