Assistant Professor

My research interests are broad, both historically and systematically.

Before joining the Faculty of Philosophy I was a postdoctoral research fellow in philosophy at the University of Oxford and before that I completed my PhD at the University of Cambridge.

Please contact me if you are a prospective student and have any queries.

On my personal site you can find more materials related to my teaching and research.
