About

I work on Ethics, Political Philosophy and the Philosophy of Mind. My dissertation was on moral responsibility and the problem of moral luck, and my work on theoretical ethics and philosophy of mind are extensions of topics I covered there.

I have more recently begun to work on political philosophy, specifically on issues related to democracy and secession. I teach widely across the curriculum, including ethics, political philosophy, history of philosophy, logic, M&E and interdisciplinary liberal arts courses.
