I'm a Senior Research Scientist in the Ethics Research Team at DeepMind. I was previously an Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy and the Neuroscience Program at Rhodes College and an affiliated researcher with ANU's Humanizing Machine Intelligence Grand Challenge. I was also a Research Fellow in the School of Philosophy at the Australian National University and a McDonnell Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology program at Washington University in St. Louis.
My research is in the philosophy of cognitive science and neuroscience. I work on the nature of valuation and its role in theories of the mind. My current work includes investigating the possibility of meaningfully moral artificial intelligence.
