Welcome to my academic site. Here, I have drawn together some materials
regarding my research for those who have asked and others who may
find it useful.
My research interests include both theoretical and practical ethics,
with a focus on questions concerning the big picture. I am currently
investigating the topic of moral uncertainty: the study of how to
act when we are unsure of the relevant moral considerations. This
is a much neglected area of theoretical ethics with many strong

an ongoing interest in questions about future technologies and global
On a more practical front, my interest in global poverty is far
from merely academic. I am deeply concerned about what may well
be the most important moral issue of our day. I have therefore founded
an organization called Giving
What We Can to bring together those who are similarly concerned
about extreme poverty and help us to give more efficiently and effectively.
