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 of Leeds. I graduated with a PhD from University of St Andrews, where I worked with Prof. Berys Gaut.

My academic work is focused in two fields:

Classification of art
Aesthetic and artistic evaluation
Ontology and metaphysics of art and aesthetic properties
Borderlines of the aesthetic

Applied Ethics
Ethics of drug use, addiction, and treatment
Cognitive enhancement

I am committed to promoting equality and diversity in the academia and manage an online resource devoted to this aim: the Diversity Reading List.

Outside the Academia, I am a semi-professional double bass player - I played in a number of classical ensembles, jazz, folk and rock bands. I also enjoy backpacking, acrobatics, and crafting in wood and leather.
