About me

I graduated from Oxford with a degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics in 2015, then completed a Masters in Philosophy at the University of Reading. I am now finishing a PhD in Philosophy at the University of Southampton. I have taught Philosophy since 2016, working as an assistant lecturer at Southampton and King's College, London. I have also worked as a private tutor online since summer last year.

Outside of philosophy, I am interested in politics, football and chess. I live in Reading with my wife, Rachel.
