About me

About me

I joined the philosophy department at Stirling in September 2005 after having briefly taught at Oxford University and the University of Otago in New Zealand. I am not new to Scotland, however, as I did my MLitt and PhD at the University of St Andrews. Between 2009 and 2012 I was a Research Fellow at the Uppsala University in Sweden. Teaching Spring 2021 PHIU9J4 Moral Theory

Research (2)

My interests in philosophy are very broad. Although I am first and foremost a moral philosopher (broadly construed), I am also interested in epistemology, philosophy of action, and philosophy mind. More specifically, I am interested in the normative aspects of these subjects. I am currently working on various topics within the theories of practical reason and rationality.
