I work in ethics broadly construed, especially metaethics and moral psychology. I am generally fascinated by the nature of norms, meaning and values. I approach these topics via empirical research and philosophical methods of logic and analysis. I also have interests in the ethics of technology, animal ethics, ancient philosophy, metaphilosophy and the philosophy of David Hume.
