My research addresses questions in the philosophy of harm, the ethics of future generations, and more recently, the ethics of artificial intelligence. In my research, I defend a "hybrid" account of harm and explore what constraints against doing harm imply in complicated cases, like cases involving risk or future generations. My current work addresses AI and wellbeing. I am interested in the nature and morality of harms that are mediated through AI. I am also interested in the ethics of AI at the workplace.
