Senior Lecturer in International Ethics, UNSW Sydney

I earned a PhD in applied philosophy, specializing in military ethics, from the University of Melbourne. Currently I am a Senior Lecturer in International Ethics at UNSW Canberra, located at the Australian Defence Force Academy. Over the past decade I have held fellowships at the Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics at Oxford, the MacMillan Center for International Studies at Yale, the McCoy Centre for Ethics at Stanford, and the philosophy department at Georgetown University. I am the author of Insurrection and Intervention: the Two Faces of Sovereignty (Cambridge University Press 2012), and Ethics, Security, and the War-Machine, (Oxford University Press, forthcoming 2020). I am also an Associate Director of the International Society for Military Ethics, Asia-Pacific Chapter.
