Biography

At the highest level of description my research interests are political philosophy and applied ethics; I am interested in philosophical arguments with real-world implications. More specifically, I am working in or have worked in: political philosophy, bioethics, environmental ethics, media ethics; just war theory; and the ethics of science and technology.

A more-or-less-up-to-date list of my publications with links to copies of (some of) them, can be found here. Copies of all of my published papers are available on request.
