I am an Assistant Professor in the Philosophy Department at Carleton University. From 2018-2023, I will also be a Research Professor at the University of Barcelona, where I will be the Principal Investigator on the project Rethinking Conscious Agency, funded by a 1.06 million Euro grant from the European Research Council. See other pages on this site for more information.

In the past I have been a Wellcome Trust Research Fellow at the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, and a Junior Research Fellow at Jesus College, Oxford.

Current philosophical projects include a series of articles on consciousness and action and their various relationships to each other, and a book on the nature of agency (Tentative title: 'The Shape of Agency').

My first book, Consciousness and Moral Status, has been published by Routledge.
