My research is mainly in the philosophy of language and in ethics. I also have many vested interests in topics across epistemology, logic, and related areas. I also have teaching interests in some areas in the history of philosophy.
Below you will see information about my background and experience in teaching, including information about this semester.
Much of my recent work is on generics, deontic modals, supererogation, moral principles, empathy, and moral epistemology. You can read more about this, as well as some recent news, below.
I am an Associate Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of St Andrews and a member of the Centre for Ethics, Philosophy and Public Affairs.
I did my PhD and MLitt in Philosophy at St Andrews where I was a member of the Arché Philosophical Research Centre for Logic, Language, Metaphysics, and Epistemology. I did my BA in Philosophy at the University of Texas at Austin.
