I'm a Lecturer in Philosophy at the Australian National University. In 2019-2020, I was a Laurance S. Rockefeller Visiting Faculty Fellow at Princeton University. Before then, I was a Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Liverpool, and an Assistant Professor at Trinity College Dublin. My main research interests are ethics, political philosophy, and philosophy of law, with a current focus on the pandemic, population ethics, utilitarianism, AI, and punishment.
I also write for popular media. My pieces have been published in The New York Times, The Sydney Morning Herald, Salon, and The Conversation.
Some recent pieces:

"A philosopher's view: Why you don't need to feel sad about Donald Trump catching COVID", Sydney Morning Herald, October 12, 2020
