Ethical theory, Kant
My research is mainly concerned with ethical theory, particularly duties to oneself, rights, dignity, and the relation between moral obligations and practical reason. I am especially interested in Kantian and second-personal approaches to these topics. Recently, I have also developped an interest in the philosophy of conspiracy theories.During my time at the Centre, I want to explore the prospects of interepreting Kant's philosophy as seeking to identify the constitutive principles of our fundamental rational capacities. More specifically, I want to find out whether conceiving of the Kantian will as a capacity, and the moral law as its constitutive principle, can inform debates -- both in Kant scholarship and in current ethical theory -- about autonomy of the will and the authority of morality.
From 2020 to 2022, I was a Postdoc at the University of Groningen. Before that, I spent one year as a Teaching Fellow at UCL. I received my PhD from the St Andrews/Stirling Philosophy Graduate Programme in 2019.
