Hello! I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Law at the University of Stirling.
My primary research is in the philosophy of emotion. I am interested in the role emotion plays in political and legal decision-making, in the evaluation of risk and security, in social and group cognition, and in teaching and learning. I also have a specialisation in ancient Greek philosophy.
I previously completed a postdoctoral research fellowship in philosophy of law at the University of Edinburgh’s Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, and in April-May 2016 am a Visiting Fellow at the Tilburg Centre for Logic, Ethics, and Philosophy of Science, where I am carrying out a project on political emotions. I am also Associate Editor for the Journal of Philosophy of Emotion.
