I am a Learning Technologist at the School of PPLS, University of Edinburgh. Previously, I worked as an Online Learning Specialist and Teaching Fellow at the Inter-Disciplinary Ethics Applied Centre, University
I divide my time between academic research, and design and support of online teaching. My research focuses on Aesthetics (classification of art; ontology and metaphysics of art and aesthetic properties; borderlines of art and aesthetics) and Applied Ethics (drug use, addiction, and treatment; cognitive enhancement). My teaching design and support work centeres around online Masters degrees, a number of MOOCs, and various knowledge exchange projects.
I am committed to promoting equality and diversity in the academia.
Outside the Academia, I am a semi-professional double bass player -
