I am a University Lecturer in the Faculty of Philosophy and a Fellow of King’s College at the University of Cambridge. My research focuses on Kant and the history of modern philosophy, the philosophy of science, philosophy of biology, and aesthetics. I have been particularly interested in questions at the intersection of these areas concerning the aesthetics of science and Kantian philosophy of science and biology.
I joined the Faculty at Cambridge in 2012. Before that, I was a Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of East Anglia and, before that, a Junior Research Fellow at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge. My doctorate is from the Humboldt University of Berlin where I received a Humboldt Prize for my thesis on Kant’s philosophy of nature.
I have been a Leverhulme Research Fellow and I currently hold a Pro Futura Scientia Fellowship, awarded by the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities in Cambridge and the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study.
