Having completed a DPhil in philosophy on free will scepticism, under the supervision of Prof John Hyman and Prof Alison Hills, I come to the project looking for a (slightly) less speculative research. I have slowly transitioned from a general scepticism about moral responsibility to a specific curiosity regarding the nature of excuses and moral deliberation. This is partly due to my teaching duties at St John’s College, Oxford, which in the academic year 2019–2020 has included classes in practical ethics, in normative ethics, and on John Stuart Mill’s Utilitarianism.
I have recently published papers on free will and deliberation, dogmatism, and knowledge of our own responsibility. Nowadays, I work on the role of intentions in moral deliberation and on bridge principles such as “‘ought’ implies ‘can’” and the principle of alternate possibilities.
