My research interests include: reproductive ethics, parenting, research ethics, informed consent, Ebola virus disease, military medicine, insect suffering, welfare biology, population dynamics, social robotics, machine intelligence, catastrophic risk, decision theory, environmental ethics, population ethics, and value theory.
I completed my undergraduate degree in Stirling, during which time I undertook a year of study abroad at the University of Victoria, Canada.

I successfully defended my thesis in November 2013 and graduated in July 2014.
