Philosophy, Politics, & Economics Society 2019 Meeting (New Orleans), Mar 28-30 2019. 'Moral Risk and Communicating Consent'. Part of a panel on "Normative Powers and Convention" with Tom Dougherty (Cambridge) and Laura Valentini (LSE)
I am a postdoctoral research fellow in the School of Philosophy at Australian National University. At the moment, I'm working on the moral significance of risk, as part of an Australian Research Council (ARC) project with Seth Lazar, Lara Buchak, Alan Hajek, Philip Pettit, Frank Jackson, and Katie Steele. I'm exploring questions like how uncertainty about what rights-altering choices others have made (e.g. consenting, unjustly attacking, promising) affects the contours of our moral obligations, and whether (and if so when) willfully undertaking risky activities diminishes an agent's standing to complain against resulting harms or wrongs.
other In my spare time, I paint. I've started a series of portraits of philosophers, painting various famous philosophers in style that highlights themes central to the philosopher's work. You can see those paintings here.
