I am Assistant Professor / Faculty Fellow at the NYU Center for Bioethics.  From 2011-2014 I was a postdoctoral research fellow in philosophy at Oxford University and a junior research fellow of Jesus College Oxford. My CV is available here

I work on issues concerning the nature of human moral agency, especially in light of the self-understanding we can gain from social cognitive science. You can hear an interview discussing some of the main themes of my research at Philosophy Bites. I also work on the implications of moral disagreement and difference, and on ethical issues arising from identity-affecting biotechnologies.

Here you can learn a bit more about me, about my research and publications, and about my teaching.

The photos elsewhere on this site are my own. If you enjoy them, you’re welcome to visit my (infrequently updated) flickr page.
