I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in Legal Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh’s Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities. I recently completed my PhD in Philosophy here at Edinburgh, as an SSHRC Doctoral Fellow and Career Development Scholar. My main research interest is in the philosophy of emotion. I am interested in the role emotion plays in legal decision-making, in the relationship between risk and action, and in teaching and learning. I also have a longstanding passion for ancient Greek philosophy.

I caught up with BBC Scotland’s science journalism gurus to discuss UK funding for humanities research in light of the 2012 Nobel Prize. Have a listen.
