I joined the University of Warwick in September 2017 as a Teaching Fellow with academic responsibilities for admissions, outreach and recruitment activities within the Department of Philosophy. Previously, I worked as a Teaching Fellow in Philosophy at the University of Southampton. I also completed my Ph.D. at the University of Southampton, in 2014, with a thesis on Arthur Schopenhauer’s philosophy of pessimism. My research focuses on Schopenhauer, especially his pessimism, but more recently his moral and political philosophy. I have taught a wide range of topics in philosophy, but mainly in the history of philosophy and the philosophy of value, particularly ethics and aesthetics.
In the 2017/18 year I will be teaching the following modules:
- PH368 Philosophy of Religion (with Barney Walker)
- PH372 The Ethics of Sociability
- PH212 Applied Ethics
In the 2018/19 year I will be teaching the following modules:
- PH145 Plato and Descartes (with Stephen Butterfill)
- PH334 Nietzsche in Context
- PH368 Philosophy of Religion
