Hello! I teach philosophy at the University of Edinburgh.
I previously completed a postdoctoral research fellowship in philosophy of law at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, and in summer 2016 will be a Visiting Fellow at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, working on a project on human dignity.
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.
