Personal profile

Research interests

 

I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy. My primary research is in moral philosophy, particularly supererogation (acts beyond the call of duty), the relationship between morality and self-interest and the moral psychology of saints and heroes. I also have research interests in aesthetics, political philosophy, applied ethics, philosophy of religion and the philosophy of sport.
