My research is focused on the question what role time plays in moral thinking. For example, I might prefer a painful operation to be in the past rather in the future. Or, I might prefer that an operation is not tomorrow, but next week, or next month, because that’s just farer away from me now.

This is called being time-biased. What I’m assessing in my work is whether time-biases are permissible, or whether you ought to be temporally neutral, giving no significance to time in moral thinking.

 

I have given talks on this here:

  • August 2017: 9th European Congress for Analytic Philosophy, LMU Munich

  • May 2017: Workshop on Prudence, Well-Being and Time, University of Tampere

  • August 2016: Workshop on Time and Justice, University of Münster

I have also given talks on feminist ethics, moral impartiality, and how to bring both back together, here:

  • March 2017: PhD Seminar, University of Manchester

  • December 2016: SWIP Ireland Conference on Feminist Ethics, University of Galway

I also talked about retributivism in criminal law, and why it’s so awful, here:

  • February 2017: Warwick Graduate Conference on Political Theory, University of Warwick

  • September 2016: BPPA Graduate Conference, University of Reading

I’m also maybe about to publish a book chapter on the relationship between time and justice.
