I am a Teaching Fellow in Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh.

I previously completed a postdoctoral research fellowship in Legal Philosophy at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities. My primary research is in the philosophy of emotion. I am interested in the role emotion plays in political and legal decision-making, in the evaluation of risk and security, in social and group cognition, and in teaching and learning. I also have a specialisation in ancient Greek philosophy.
