My research interests include modern European philosophy (especially Kant and post-Kantian philosophy), history and philosophy of science, aesthetics and ethics.
I am co-director of the London Post-Kantian Seminar, a member of the Warwick Centre for Research in Post-Kantian European Philosophy, and serve on the executive committee of the UK Kant Society.
Before coming to Warwick I held postdocs at UCL, Durham and Bonn, and received a PhD in Philosophy from the University of Sydney. I have spent time as a visiting scholar at UC San Diego (2018) and University of Chicago (2019), and as a visiting fellow at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge (2020).
