Summary

My PhD uses tools from economics to address questions in ethics and epistemology. The first half of my thesis is about the ethics of risk and uncertainty. I use autonomous vehicles as a case study. The second half is a defence of non-consequentialism in ethics and epistemology. My main research interest is moral philosophy, in particular its overlaps with decision-theory and economics. But I am also interested in formal epistemology, meta-ethics and meta-epistemology, moral psychology, legal philosophy, artificial intelligence and philosophy of biology. 

Biography

I am an AHRC-funded PhD candidate in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Bristol. I am also President of the British Postgraduate Philosophy Association. My PhD uses tools from economics to address questions in ethics and epistemology. The first half of my thesis is about the ethics of risk and uncertainty. I use autonomous vehicles as a case study. The second half is a defence of non-consequentialism in ethics and epistemology. My main research interest is moral philosophy, in particular its overlaps with decision-theory and economics. But I am also interested in formal epistemology, meta-ethics and meta-epistemology, moral psychology, legal philosophy, artificial intelligence and philosophy of biology. 

I completed my BSc in Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method at the London School of Economics in 2016. I received First Class Honours and the Andrea Mannu Prize for highest marks on my programme. After that, I moved to Bristol to read for an MA in Philosophy. I graduated in 2017 with Distinction in all components and highest marks on my programme.
