University Teacher Philosophy


Personal Statement

Most of my research explores how work done in environmental philosophy might be informed by insights from phenomenology, feminist philosophy and the 'new realist' school of metaphysics. Specifically, I am interested in how reconfiguring the ways that we typically encounter and think about the envrionmental crisis might provide useful tools with which to disrupt it at root. Before teaching at Liverpool, I taught at the University of Manchester and Liverpool Hope University. I have also led A level Philosophy provision in various sixth form colleges around the UK over the past thirteen years.
