I am a philosopher at the University of Bristol with interests stretching widely across science and philosophy. My primary research interests are located at the intersection of the biological, social, and mind sciences in addition to empirically informed philosophy and ethics. I am also an external member of the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy at LMU Munich, and am currently a visitor at Rob Salguero-Gómez’s SalGo lab at the Department of Biology, University of Oxford. For a glimpse of my work, you can watch this talk of mine on the evolution of multicellular organisms or take a look at my list of publications which now includes over 60 papers.
I also did a couple of interviews on my work:
- ePODstemology Podcast with Mark Fabian and Heather Browning: What can animals teach us about consciousness?
- Do Explain Podcast with Christofer Lövgren: Animal Sentience
- Interviewed by Cody Turner’s Tent Talks: Naturalizing Consciousness
- Interviewed by Jamie Woodhouse’s Sentientism Podcast: Animal Sentience, Ethics, and Religion
- Interview with the Philosophy Exchange Podcast: Model Diversity and the Embarrassment of Riches
- Interviewed by the The NonSequitur Show: Ethics of Genetic Engineering
My partner and frequent collaborator Heather Browning is a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Philosophy at the University of Southampton.
