doctoral/PhD student at Department of Philosophy, Aesthetics; Academic Staff
Also available at
I was appointed to a PhD position in Aesthetics within the Philosophy Department at Uppsala University in September 2016. Prior to this appointment, I completed an MPhil in Philosophy at the University of Southampton. During the period I was researching and writing my MPhil thesis, I also undertook various teaching responsibilities in both the Philosophy department and the Modern Languages department at Southampton.
My current research focuses on the relation between aesthetic and ethical value. More specifically, my thesis is an investigation of how we can make sense of the capacity of artworks to enrich our ethical understanding, prompt significant changes in our ethical outlook and generate ethical norms.
Previously, I completed an MPhil thesis on the themes of artistry and truthfulness in the philosophy of Nietzsche. This thesis touched on several research areas in which I am interested: the relation between art and truth, the cognitive value of art and the ethical import of art. I also maintain a research interest in Nietzsche studies.
