About Me

About Me

I am currently an Associate Professor at the University of Warwick School of Law. I complete my PhD at Warwick in 2013 and I also hold an MA in philosophy from the University of London.

Most of my academic work has been on the philosophy of tort law. I have published on topics such as theories of harm and compensation, principles governing liability to compensate, the value of reputation in defamation, the wrongness of risking, and the relationship between tort theory and political philosophy. I also have a general interest in moral, political and legal philosophy and have worked on topics outside tort theory including the basis of moral equality, the relationship between reasoning and moral permissibility, regulating the global information commons, and the use of hypothetical cases in moral philosophy. My first academic book, provisionally entitled Compensatory Justice Beyond Tort Law, will be published with Oxford University Press. I am currently an associate editor for the Journal of Applied Philosophy.

In my spare time, I enjoy writing fiction, both speculative and non-speculative, often with philosophical or legal themes. I have published short fiction in Litro, Storgy, Welkin: A Magazine of the Fantastic, Silver Blade and others. I have been nominated for the Best of the Net anthology. I am working on a project called Legal Fictions, which explores legal and philosophical themes through the short story, which I also use in my teaching.
