Iā€™m a Lecturer in Philosophy of Art at the University of Liverpool, where I also direct the MA in Art, Philosophy and Cultural Institutions.

ā€‹

My academic work is in contemporary aesthetics, especially on the question of how art can bring about social and political change. I publish in both Philosophy and History of Art journals and collaborate on art projects.

Before joining the department at Liverpool in 2018, I was the inaugural Jeffrey Rubinoff Junior Research Fellow at Churchill College, the University of Cambridge. I obtained my doctorate (D.Phil.) from the University of Oxford in 2015.
