Background

My research is primarily in metaethics. In my doctoral thesis, I examine how theories of propositional content and attitudes might inform an expressivist theory of normative thought and discourse. I also have a broader interest in ethics, philosophy of language, and philosophy of mind. My doctoral research is currently supported by a Royal Institute of Philosophy Bursary. From 2016-19 it was supported by an Arts and Humanities Research Council DTP Studentship with the Scottish Graduate School of Arts and Humanities. I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
