Background

My PhD project concerns moral epistemology. More specifically, it has two aims: firstly, clarifying and developing the epistemology of evolutionary debunking arguments in metaethics, and, secondly, defending moral realism against them.

Before coming to Edinburgh, I attended the University of St Andrews (MA Hons) and University of Oxford (B Phil).
