I am Fellow and Tutor in Philosophy at Trinity College, Oxford and a Professor of Philosophy in the Faculty of Philosophy in the University of Oxford. I work mainly in the philosophy of mind and the philosophy of Immanuel Kant and have a longstanding interest in the work of Iris Murdoch. I am the Reviews Editor for MIND.
I recently held a British Academy Mid-Career Fellowship for a project on self-consciousness and objectivity. The result is a book, The Practical Self, forthcoming with Oxford University Press in 2024.
I was an undergraduate and graduate in Oxford. After leaving Oxford I worked in the civil service and the Houses of Parliament before taking up a position at Birkbeck College in the University of London. I joined Trinity in 2011.
