Short Bio

I am currently the Head of Department of Theology, Religion and Philosophy at the University of Winchester. I joined Winchester in 2014, when it was only the Department of Theology and Religion, and have been working to increase the profile of philosophy in the university ever since, introducing new mixed degrees in Philosophy, Religion and Ethics, Philosophy, Politics and Economics and most recently in Philosophy itself.

I received by doctorate in philosophy at the University of Essex in early 2013, having previously studied at L’Institut Catholique de Paris, University College London and Kings College London. I was awarded the title of being one of the ten AHRC and BBC Radio 3 ‘New Generation Thinkers 2012’ and having enjoyed working with the BBC and other organisations such as TATE and the Institute of Art and Ideas to bring philosophy to the public.
