Personal profile

Research interests

I will start as an Interdisciplinary Ethics Fellow at Stanford University in September 2020. I’ll be based between the Center for Ethics in Society and the Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence. Right now, I’m a Research Assistant at the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence at the University of Cambridge. I work on Dr Rune Nyrup’s project ‘Understanding Medical Black Boxes.’ I completed an AHRC funded PhD in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Bristol in May 2020.  My PhD developed an account of how automated vehicles morally ought to moderate their speed in cases where they are severely uncertain about the classification of proximate objects and how those objects will behave. My supervisors were Prof. Richard Pettigrew and Prof. Brad Hooker; and my examiners were Prof. Samir Okasha and Dr Sven Nyholm.
