I am a Graduate Development Scholar and DPhil Philosophy candidate at St Anne's College, supervised by Prof. Roger Crisp and Prof. Timothy Williamson. My research has been generously funded by an Arts and Humanities Research Council Studentship, St Anne's College, Oxford, and an Aristotelian Society Bursary. My work is primarily in (meta-)metaphysics, moral philosophy, and their intersections. Before Oxford, I read for the MPhil at Darwin College, Cambridge, the MLitt at the St Andrews/Stirling Philosophy Graduate Programme, and a BA (Hons) from the University of Reading. 

At Oxford I have delivered a series of lectures entitled Key Topics in Recent Meta-Ethics and tutored across EthicsKnowledge and Reality, Moral Philosophy: Mill's UtilitarianismPhilosophy of Logic and Language, Philosophy of Cognitive Science, meta-ethics, epistemic injustice, and transformative experience. 

I've held a number of roles in the wider British philosophical student community including, amongst others, President of the British Postgraduate Philosophy Association, President of the British Undergraduate Philosophy Society, and (still acting) Mentor on the Minorities and Philosophy UK Mentorship Scheme. 

From October 2021, I will be a Stipendiary Junior Research Fellow at Christ's College, Cambridge.
