About me

Full Curriculum Vitae

Short bio

Born in the wilds of rural England, I moved to Oxford for university when I was 18, where I studied for a BA in Classics and a BPhil in Philosophy. From 2010-2016, I studied for and defended my PhD. in philosophy at the CUNY Graduate Center and gave lectures at Baruch College. I am now a Research Associate at the Centre for the Future of Intelligence at the University of Cambridge, where I lead the Consciousness and Intelligence project. I give supervisions in philosophy at Downing College as a Bye Fellow and Teaching Fellow, and at Corpus Christi College as a Philosophy Preceptor.

When I’m not doing philosophy, I’m usually running, climbing, swimming, or some combination of the above. I’m also very interested in science fiction, animals, evolution, probability, game theory, language, psychology, neuroscience, politics, storytelling, law, geology, space, art, music, etymology, history, and Kerbal Space Program. I live in Cambridge with my wife Wanda and our three year old son Luke.
