ABOUT ME

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 supervision of Julian Savulescu, while comfortably based at the Uehiro Centre. Immediately after, I was a researcher at BERI for FHI. Before my doctorate, I earned a bachelor and master’s degree in philosophy, founded and directed an NGO and was a researcher at MIRI. I have taught a wide range of students on subjects from early modern philosophy to applied ethics to philosophy of science.
