About me

I am a Visiting Scholar at the University of California, Berkeley and a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at Practical Philosophy, University of Helsinki, where I am also a member of TINT – the Centre for Philosophy of the Social Science.

My research focuses on shared and collective responsibility. This includes questions such as what collectively caused structural harms we can be complicit in, what the nature of collective agents, and what we mean by their responsibility.

DSC03382I am also interested in questions to do with social epistemology, of 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.

I defended my thesis on collective responsibility for climate change in December 2017.  I was awarded the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Global Fellowship in 2019 for my research project ‘Complicity: Individual Responsibility in Collective Contexts’. The project commenced in August 2019. For the first year of the project, I am a Visiting Scholar at Berkeley Law with Professor Christopher Kutz as my sponsor. The project is funded by the European Commission.
