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:

Aesthetics
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.
