I’m a Professor of Philosophy at the University of Warwick, specialising in moral and political philosophy and in social epistemology, including political epistemology. I served as Head of Department from 2017 to 2020.

Before coming to Warwick, I was a postdoc at Harvard University and then an assistant professor at the University of Basel. I’ve held visiting positions at the Research School of Social Sciences at ANU and the Murphy Institute at Tulane University.

I am an associate editor of the Journal of Moral Philosophy. I'm also a past editor of Economics and Philosophy  and a past associate editor of the Journal of Applied Philosophy. I'm President Elect (for 2024/25) of the Aristotelian Society.
