I am a DPhil Philosophy candidate at Oriel College, supervised by Prof. Roger Crisp and Prof. Timothy Williamson. I hold a full Arts and Humanities Research Council Studentship. My work is primarily in (meta-)metaphysics, moral philosophy, and their intersections. These interests combine in my doctoral thesis entitled 'Why We Cannot Be Quiet About the Metaphysics of Normativity'. 

In Hilary Term 2020, I will be delivering a series of lectures on Advanced Topics in Recent Meta-Ethics. I have also tutored Knowledge and Reality at University College, Moral Philosophy at Oriel College, Philosophy of Logic and Language at St. Anne's College, Ethics at University College, and Philosophy of Cognitive Science at Worcester College. 

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.

I recevied the MPhil in Philosophy from the University of Cambridge, funded by a Darwin Philosophy Studentship. I also took the MLitt in Philosophy with Distinction from the St. Andrews/Stirling Philosophy Graduate Programme (SASP), where I held the Philosophical Quarterly Scholarship and was placed on the Deans' List for Academic Excellence. Before Oxford, Cambridge, and St Andrews, I grew up around the world, received my secondary school education at St. Edward's School, Oxford, and I took a BA (Hons) in Philosophy from the University of Reading (with First Class Honours, the Philosophy Department Prize, the Laurie Brain Prize, and the Chancellor's Award).
