I am a postdoctoral researcher specialising in normative and applied ethics. I recently completed a PhD in philosophy at University College London under the supervision of Joe Horton. I am also a fellow at the Forethought Foundation for Global Priorities Research which works in close collaboration with the Global Priorities Institute (Oxford).

My research is primarily on what is known as 'the numbers problem', my doctoral dissertation providing non-aggregative arguments in favour of a pro tanto rational obligation to save the greater number. I'm also interested in moral uncertainty, moral aggregation, the demandingness of beneficence, and the philosophical foundations of effective altruism.


I am currently being supported by a fellowship from the Society for Applied Philosophy and the Forethought Foundation for Global Priorities Research.
