I'm from Melbourne, Australia. Before arriving at UCL I was a Lecturer at Monash University (2013-17), and a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Chicago (2015). I completed my graduate studies at Oxford (2009-13) and Monash (2007-08).


I have contributed to a number of programs that bring philosophy to a wider public, including the Philosopher’s Zone, the Minefield, the Fire in a Crowded Theatre podcast, the Stuart Low Trust, the Ethics Matters television show, the Victorian Association for Philosophy in Schools, The Leeds Film and Philosophy Society, Humanities 21, the Drawing Room, and the Elucidations Podcast.
