Louise Daoust


I’m a 5th year graduate student in Philosophy at Penn, and I’m writing a dissertation about visual perception and its role in action. Originally from Ottawa, Canada, I grew up playing hockey and attending public school in French. In 2009, I completed a BA in Philosophy and English at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I've also lived in Paris, Toronto, New Orleans, Berlin, Brooklyn, and Havana. In my free time, I like to ride my bike, eat good food with friends, and see local theater. I love living in Philadelphia.
