I started at Pittsburgh in 2011, after completing a BA(Hons) and Masters degree in philosophy at the University of Auckland, New Zealand.

I’m interested in normativity, especially in ethics. I’m working on a contribution to the neo-Aristotelian project in ethics (Foot, Hursthouse, Thompson et al.) focusing on the connection between natural normativity as in Foot, and constitutive normativity as in Kantian and Humean constitutivism.
