I’m a Visiting Fellow at Harvard University’s Ash Center in the Kennedy School of Government and a FAPESP Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Sao Paulo. I research virtue theory, moral psychology, moral status, cooperation, and their implications for the ethics of new technologies. At the Ash Center, I focus on democratic erosion, new technologies and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Last academic year, I was a Visiting Fellow at the Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University. In 2018, I completed a doctorate in philosophy in applied ethics at the University of Oxford under the main supervision of Julian Savulescu, while comfortably based at the Uehiro Centre. Before my doctorate, I earned a bachelor and master’s degree in philosophy and founded and directed an NGO.

I have taught a wide range of students on subjects from early modern philosophy to applied ethics to philosophy of science. I have been hired as an external consultant for leading organizations researching our long-term future, such as CEA, BERI (for FHI), and MIRI.
