Background

I am a final year PhD student in Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh. My PhD thesis examines evolutionary debunking arguments in ethics, supervised by Matthew ChrismanDuncan Pritchard  and Geoff Sayre-McCord. My research is funded by a Swiss National Science Foundation Doc.Mobility Fellowship and a Janggen-Pöhn Foundation Scholarship.

Before coming to Edinburgh, I attended the University of St. Andrews (MA Hons.) and Oxford University (B.Phil.). During the academic year 2016/17, I was a Visiting Lecturer at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
