Most of my research to date has been at the intersection of Moral Philosophy (and especially Moral Psychology & Environmental Ethics), the Philosophy of Mind, Psychology & Cognitive Science, and Philosophical Aesthetics. 

Broadly speaking, my research is concerned with characterising certain emotions, and understanding the role that these emotions play in our lives, particularly with respect to our perceptual, moral and aesthetic capacities.

I was the winner of the American Philosophical Association's 2024 Arthur Danto/ASA prize.
