Current Research and Scholarly Interests

I work in moral, political, and legal philosophy. I am especially interested in non-consequentialist ethics and global and rectificatory justice. My doctoral thesis was on the ethics of other-defence and humanitarian intervention, and much of my work continues to examine the relationship between duties to rescue and permissions to harm. I am also interested in the relationship between AI, human rights, and democracy. My work in this area examines what we owe to one another as we continue to make AI and digital technologies more powerful and prevalent. Questions in which I am interested include how we should think about human rights in the age of AI; what, if anything, we compromise in delegating moral decisions to algorithms; and on what grounds human agents can be held responsible for what robots do.
