Lecturer Philosophy


    Personal Statement

    I work at the intersection of philosophy of mind, action and ethics and have published extensively on the work of G. E. M. Anscombe. I have two collaborative research projects that provide a frame for much of my research. The Integrity Project ( looks at the meaning and importance of integrity. I was awarded a British Academy Rising Star Engagement Award (2016-2017) for work with a local arts organisation, Wunderbar (, exploring artistic integrity and arts fundraising. I am collaborating with Clare MacCumhaill (Durham University) on a BA-funded project that explores the work and friendships of four women philosophers who met at Oxford during WWII: Anscombe, Philippa Foot, Mary Midgley and Iris Murdoch ( As well as studying the philosophy of four wonderfully creative thinkers we want to understand why there are so few women in philosophy and to work out what we might do about it!

    Before joining the department at Liverpool, I studied at UCL and York and was an Addison Wheeler Research Fellow at Durham.
