British Academy Post-Doctoral Research Fellow Department of Philosophy University of Manchester
I work in philosophy of emotion, value, and mind, with a strong interest in Nietzsche and the Phenomenologists
My research focuses on the intersection between philosophy of mind, emotion and value. I am now developing a new theory of emotions which holds that emotional experiences are constituted by what I call feelings towards value, which I argue are sui generis states. This theory captures the important connection between emotions and values, while being sensitive to the distinctive phenomenology of emotions. I am currently writing up this research into a manuscript titled "Emotions as Feelings Towards Value: A Theory of Emotional Experience. I am also working on papers on the phenomenology and normativity of pain experiences.
