Hayden Wilkinson

Welcome to my site! My name is Hayden and I'm a PhD student in philosophy at the Australian National University. I previously worked as Head of Research Operations for the Global Priorities Institute at the University of Oxford and, more recently, was a Visiting Student Researcher at Princeton University. This year, I am directing the Effective Altruism Global x Australia conference, which will also feature the first EAGxAustralia Workshop on Global Priorities; for more information, see the conference website.

My academic work falls primarily within normative ethics and decision theory, although I have side interests in bioethics, philosophy of time, philosophy of physics, and philosophy of mathematics. My dissertation focuses on the difficulties of moral decision-making when infinite values are at stake.

Aside from philosophy, I enjoy getting lost in the wilderness, making puns, and trying to make the world a better place (but effectively).

This is what my face looks like.
