I did my BA in Philosophy and Politics at the University of York and, in 2005, completed a PhD in Philosophy at the University of Sheffield. After my PhD and until 2010, I worked at the Universities of Stirling and Lancaster as a Lecturer. In 2010, I took up a Junior Professorship in Practical Philosophy at the Humboldt-University, Berlin, and in 2016, was appointed a Professor in Practical Philosophy at HU Berlin. From 2017-2021 I worked at the University of Oxford as an Associate Professor of Philosophy and Fellow of Somerville College. In January 2021, I was appointed Professor and Chair in Metaphysics at the University of Amsterdam.
