Previously, I was a Visiting Research Fellow at the Centre de Recherche en Éthique in Montréal, Canada (2020-21), and a Lecturer in the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies at UDSM (2017-19).
Before moving to East Africa, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Johannesburg in South Africa (2016-17), where I worked under the supervision of Professor Thaddeus Metz, and an Adjunct Professor of Philosophy at Lone Star College–Tomball (2016).
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 applied ethics, moral theory, social and political philosophy, metaphysics, epistemology, logic, and critical thinking.
