I am Gerry Higgins Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Melbourne. I was Visiting Assistant Professor in Philosophy at the University at Albany, State University of New York during the academic year 2013-14, and full time Visiting Instructor at Bowling Green State University during the academic year 2012-13.
I chose to write my PhD dissertation on John Locke on Persons and Personal Identity, because I was interested in understanding how Locke links questions of accountability to his account of personal identity. I received my PhD in 2013 from the University of St Andrews. During my PhD I was visiting researcher at Yale and Rutgers Universities.
Most of my academic work focuses on early modern philosophy and lies at the intersection between metaphysics, philosophy of mind, and ethics. My other philosophical interests include epistemology, social epistemology, history of ethics, and philosophy of religion.
