Research Interests

My research work is primarily concerned with the intersections of ethics, legal and political philosophy, the philosophy of language and linguistics, and the philosophy of biology and medicine. I see these as closely-intertwined aspects of a general philosophical anthropology,  clustered around the so-called “fact/value distinction”, and I aim to investigate what it is to be human through the prism of what I take to be an inherently public sort of phenomenological normativity which permeates human experience.
