I am a Junior Research Fellow at Wolfson College and a Member of the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Oxford. Most of my research so far has been in metaphilosophy, epistemology, metaethics, the theory of action, and the history of philosophy from the eighteenth to the twentieth century (especially Hume, Rousseau, Smith, Nietzsche, Wittgenstein, Isaiah Berlin, and Bernard Williams). But I am a generalist at heart, and also have a strong interest in the philosophy of language, in social and political philosophy, and in the philosophy of law. In 2022, I am to receive the Lauener Prize for Up-and-Coming Philosophers.

My first monograph, entitled The Practical Origins of Ideas: Genealogy as Conceptual Reverse-Engineering, was published open access by Oxford University Press and can be downloaded for free here. To buy a print copy with a 30% discount, click on the image below.
