Research Interests

My earliest research interest, which materialised in my DPhil thesis, was in Derrida’s early philosophy. Since then, my research has been divided between two main strands: (i) phenomenology and existentialism (especially the work of Jean-Paul Sartre) (ii) moral philosophy, especially applied ethics. I am also interested in feminist philosophy, which has influenced some of my publications, as well as my teaching. I co-edit the journal Sartre Studies International.


For the BA in Philosophy I teach a course on Applied Ethics, and a course on Morality and Literature. In addition, I teach a seminar for Finalists and research students on Sartre’s Philosophy. A recent research seminar (co-taught with Dr John Vorhaus) has been on people with profound impairment (or cognitive disability), and how moral and political philosophy accommodates, or should accommodate, these people.
