My PhD thesis is on the philosophy of humour. Despite being universally and uniquely human, humour has been a surprisingly neglected topic in philosophy. My thesis aims to answer two fundamental questions – ‘what is humour?’ and ‘how does immorality affect funniness?’
Before my PhD, I completed an MA in Philosophy & Mathematics at the University of Edinburgh and an MPhil in Philosophy at the University of Cambridge. During both, I relished researching topics in the analytic tradition, specifically theories of truth, mathematical logic, decision theory, and the philosophy of mathematics.
When not doing philosophy, I enjoy learning the guitar, playing football and speaking Norwegian (badly).
