I am a moral psychologist with a background in education and a multidisciplinary specialism on morality. During my MA studies I investigated the implications of evolutionary moral psychology to moral education through a Nietzschean perspective, and in my PhD research I investigated how teachers could foster students' moral development in implicit education through a virtue ethical and pragmatic lens.
My current research interests include understanding morality through a systems theory perspective with a view to enable moral agency in artificial intelligence.
