Personal profile

Biography

I’m a Lecturer (≈ Assistant Professor) in the Department of Philosophy at Macquarie University. 

I'm also an Assistant Professor (on leave of absence) in the Department of Philosophy at York University, Toronto, Canada and an Adjunct Research Fellow in the Department of Philosophy at Monash University, in Melbourne, Australia.

From 2017-19, I was a Lecturer in the Department of Philosophy at Monash University, Australia. From 2016-17, I was a Philosophy and Science of Self-Control Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Philosophy at Florida State University. From 2014-16, I was a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Philosophy at The University of Arizona. In 2013-14, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Montreal. I completed my Ph.D. in philosophy in 2013 at the University of British Columbia.

Research interests

My research interests lie at the intersection of philosophy of mind and action, artificial intelligence, metaphysics, and ethics.

In my recently published monograph, Naturally Free Action (2021, Oxford University Press), I develop a naturalistic approach to free will, a.k.a. the ability to act freely. 

I also work on issues (including ethical issues) related to artificial intelligence. In November 2019, I was awarded a DECRA (Discovery Early Career Researcher Award) by the Australian Research Council for a project on agency and artificial intelligence, which I pursued at Macquarie University from 2020-23.
