Research Fellow in the Philosophy of Ethics, Cosmological Visionaries project, King's College London

As an ethicist, I work along two axes. The first concerns outer space and involves a good deal of crossover with the sciences. The second involves time, and love's temporality in particular. This involves work rooted more in the humanities. While these scientific and more humanistic axes may seem to involve very different things, there are surprising crossovers. My books are The Ethics of Political Dissent (London & NY: Routledge, 2022); Pravda v době populismu (Truth in a Time of Populism) (Prague: Filosophia, 2019); Astrobiology and Society in Europe (Heidelberg, London and New York: Springer, 2018), eds. Kapova, Persson, Milligan and Duner. White Paper produced by Working Group 5 of COST (Cooperation in Science and Technology) Action TD1308; The Ethics of Space Exploration, eds.
