My main interests are moral and political philosophy (construed in the broadest sense) and in particular, I continue to pursue an interest in radical political theory/philosophy. Recent focus has been on Marxism and Anarchism which happen to reflect my teaching contribution too.

Philosophy Society Liaison
I liaise with the student-run Philosophy Society on behalf of the department. I am happy to help, where I can, with any issues arising in relation to the running and organization of the society. Suggestions for future events and features can be sent direct to me using the email link above.
