Christian J. Tarsney

I'm a philosopher interested in questions in and around ethics and decision theory. I'm currently a postdoc with the Global Priorities Institute, in the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Oxford. Before that, I was a postdoc with the Centre for Philosophy, Politics and Economics at the University of Groningen, and before that, I did my PhD in philosophy at the University of Maryland. My dissertation is about how to make rational decisions when you're uncertain about fundamental normative principles. Along with normative uncertainty and other problems at the intersection of ethics and decision theory, I have research interests in effective altruism, political philosophy (mainly from a PPE and EA perspective), and philosophy of time.
