Virginia Tech, April 5 - Explaining Justificatory Asymmetries in Statistical and Individualized Evidence
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. For more details, check out my research page.
My work on statistical evidence and profiling was recently featured in "The PreCrime Unit" on the podcast Hi-Phi Nation (S3 E01), produced by Barry Lam.

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.
