I'm a first year PhD candidate at the University of Edinburgh. I was fortunate enough to be the recipient of the James Forrester PhD Scholarship to support my studies. 

Previously, my philosophical education was at the University of Melbourne, where I was supervised by Dr. Daniel Halliday. My primary research interests are problems in well-being, the good life, and prudential value. I'm also interested in how well-being relates to and informs topics in ethics, political, and social philosophy.

Outside of that, I enjoy learning and talking about epistemology, artificial intelligence, rhetorical devices, startups, and music. I have also developed a morbid curiosity about the strange rise of the online right-wing reactionary movement.
