Personal profile

Research interests

My main research interest is in the ethics of war and violence, with particular interests in pacifism and non-violence. 

I am also interested in several topics in political philosophy, applied ethics, and feminist philosophy, including competition, pornography, and the intersections between feminist and animal ethics.
