About me

I am Visiting Scholar at Berkeley Law and 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.

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

I am also interested in questions to do with collective 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 will be a Visiting Scholar at UC Berkeley, with Professor Christopher Kutz as my sponsor. The project is funded by the European Commission.
