I am currently a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Leipzig, as part of the Humboldt Project led by James Conant. Before moving to Leipzig, I was based in London, where I undertook a PhD in Philosophy at UCL. Before this, I did an MPhilStud in Philosophy, also at UCL, and before that I did my BA in Philosophy, Psychology and Physiology at the University of Oxford.
My research interests are mainly in the philosophy of action. In my PhD I focused on the relationship between intentional agency, responsibility and causation, addressing a broad range of considerations, including our ability to create and change abstract objects. I am now further developing my work on this issue, alongside newer work on the topics of practical knowledge of action in progress, and two-way powers.
Other topics of particular interest to me include ameliorative projects in intersectional feminist philosophy, the metaphysics of persons and organisms, composition and constitution, reduction, the early modern period, the interaction between different kinds of explanation in the cognitive sciences, and philosophy of mind more broadly.
