I am a senior public policy and social researcher at Whereto Research in Melbourne.
Before my move to Australia I was a Departmental Lecturer in Philosophy at Oxford University, and Tutorial Fellow in Philosophy at Jesus College, Oxford. I received my PhD from the City University of New York Graduate Center in 2014.
I work primarily in Philosophy of Mind and Psychology, and in Ethics. I also have interests in Early Modern Philosophy and Philosophy of Language.
I tend to argue for positions that, as someone once told me, 'embrace the reductio'. For example, I have argued that: Concepts cannot be shared. False beliefs can be consistently and non-accidentally more useful than true beliefs. We have a right to privacy because we have a legitimate interest in getting away with wrongdoing.
I am currently working on a manuscript in which I argue that the only difference between good people and bad people is that good people feel compassion in appropriate circumstances and bad people don't.
