About me

I am a Postdoctoral Grant Researcher in Practical Philosophy at the University of Helsinki, where I obtained my PhD from in January 2018.

I study collective responsibility. This includes questions such as what collectively caused harms we can be complicit in, what is the nature of collective agents like corporations, and what we mean by their responsibility.

I am also interested in questions to do with knowledge and ignorance: the mechanisms that can cause institutional ignorance, or the use of agnotology tactics (deliberately spreading misinformation) to delay collective action to address climate change, to give but one example.

I am currently working on a project that explores our complicity when it comes to large-scale harms like climate change or the use of sweatshop labour in manufacturing consumer goods. The project is funded by a personal grant from the Finnish Cultural Foundation.
