I'm a philosopher at Deakin University, and have previously held research fellowships in the UK, Denmark and the US.
My areas of research include personal identity, philosophy of death and remembrance, 19th and 20th century European philosophy (especially the work of Søren Kierkegaard) and moral psychology.
As well as The Conversation, I'm a regular contributor to New Philosopher and pop up from time to time on ABC Radio Melbourne, Radio National, and various other places. I'm also a freelance radio documentary producer with work appearing on RN's 'The History Listen' and 'The Philosopher's Zone'.
