I am a philosopher with broad interests, but I work primarily in and at the intersections of (i) the Philosophy of Cognitive and Biological Sciences, (ii) the Philosophy of Mind, and (iii) Applied Ethics.

Much of my recent writing has been on animal minds, welfare, and ethics, as well as evolution. A forthcoming monograph titled ‘A Philosophy for the Science of Animal Consciousness‘ integrating this research into a coherent whole will be published in June with Routledge.

Currently, I am a Post-Doctoral Research Associate at the Department of Philosophy, University of Bristol and an external member of the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy, Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich.

I received a PhD from the School of History and Philosophy of Science, University of Sydney. I also spent time during my PhD as a visiting student at the London School of Economics and Political Science, the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, the University of Cambridge, and the University of Oxford.
