I am a political philosopher and an academic migrant. I'm interested in defiance, and my research focuses on illegal activism (such as civil and uncivil disobedience) and the honouring of wrongdoers (especially through commemorative practices). I'm also interested in democracy, hate speech, political philosophy of language, and applied ethics. I work for the University of Stirling as a Lecturer. I was the winner of the AAP Prize for Innovation in Inclusive Curricula 2020.
Before being rescued from the philosophical job market, I worked a fixed-term teaching job at the University of Melbourne, and was funded to undertake a short-term postdoc at the Australian National University by the Society for Applied Philosophy. I got my PhD at the Australian National University in 2020, the year of the pandemic.
