My current research focuses on the ethics of allocating healthcare resources, though my interests span moral and political philosophy quite broadly. I am especially interested in how we ought to include considerations of fairness in healthcare measures and allocation decisions, and how fairness weighs against other considerations. I am always looking for people to collaborate with, so if any of this sounds interesting please do get in touch.
I studied for a PhD in Philosophy at the Universities of Reading and Southampton under the tutelage of Philip Stratton-Lake, Brad Hooker and Jonathan Way. My thesis focused on non-additive approaches to moral aggregation, especially as it related to fairness and the distribution of harms and benefits. I was funded through the AHRC's South, West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership and I received coaching from Effective Thesis.
In a previous life I was a policy researcher, and still like to venture out of the academy whenever possible. This has included providing the NHS ethical guidance to support the development of a new Ethical Framework for allocating healthcare resources. You can also read one of my attempts at public philosophy in this nerdy anthology.
