I currently teach three units at the London School of Economics.
I am unit leader for the 10 week course ‘Genes, Brains, and Society’, taught to both BSc and MSc students. This examines, from a philosophical perspective, the ways in which recent developments in genetics and neuroscience challenge our conceptions of what we are — and what we could become. More information can be found here.
I am joint unit leader for the 10 week course ‘Philosophy of Gender and Race’, again taught to both BSc and MSc students. I teach the section on gender, which examines, from a philosophical perspective, the ontology of gender, as well as the role gender categories play in shaping the social world and structuring human lives. More information can be found here.
I teach classes and seminars for the 20 week BSc/ MSc course ‘Philosophy and Public Policy’. This course critically analyses the design and evaluation of public policies from the perspective of moral and political philosophy, covering topics from no-platforming to child enfranchisement. More information can be found here.
In 2022, I won an Excellence in Teaching award in recognition of the work I have done to enhance education and the student experience at the LSE. I have also been nominated several times for SU-organised teaching awards across multiple categories, from Inclusive Teaching to Inspirational Teaching.
In the past, I have lectured at Cambridge University, presenting a four-week lecture series to Philosophy undergraduates on the Equality of Opportunity, as part of their ‘Ethics and Political Philosophy’ unit. For details of this, please email me.
In addition to lecturing and holding classes and seminars, I also supervise a number of postgraduate and undergraduate dissertation students. Among several others, topics have included the philosophy of sex, moral bio-enhancement, and the philosophy of genetics.
