I am currently a post-doctoral fellow at the Universität Leipzig, as part of the Humboldt Project led by James Conant. From October, I will be a visiting fellow at the Freie Universität in Berlin, and part of the Human Abilities group jointly led by Barbara Vetter (FU) and Dominik Perler (HU).
Before moving to Germany, I was based in London, and completed an MPhilStud and PhD in Philosophy at UCL. And before this, I did a BA in Philosophy, Psychology and Physiology at the University of Oxford.
My primary research interests are 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 work on other aspects of intentional agency, such as the knowledge of what we are doing when doing something intentionally, and abilities to act or refrain from acting.
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.
