Before coming to Dar es Salaam, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Department of Philosophy at the University of Johannesburg in South Africa, where I was working under the supervision of Professor Thaddeus Metz.
In my doctoral dissertation, which I wrote under the direction of Professor George Sher, I defend a novel account of the wrongness of killing, according to which it is no less seriously wrong to kill a non-human conscious animal than it is to kill you or me.
I am interested in all of philosophy, except the obscure kind. Particular interests include the moral status of human and non-human animals, political philosophy, metaphysics, epistemology, logic, critical thinking, and the roles philosophy does, can, and should play in education, politics, and activism.
In my spare time, I like to ride my motorcycle, take photos, and travel. It’s Khukie with whom I enjoy doing things most.
