I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Exeter. My research contributes to an international project led by Edinburgh University called “God and the book of Nature: Building a Science-engaged Theology of Nature.” More details about the project can be found here. My work investigates what philosophical and historical approaches can offer contemporary scientific debates. Specifically I focus on how ideas derived from theology influenced the development of science.

I received my PhD from Cardiff University in 2019. I researched Kant's influence on the development of biology in the British Isles. I am currently producing a manuscript building on this research for book publication with the University of Wales Press in 2021. 

I work primarily on Kant's critical philosophy and am interested in understanding the contemporary relevance of his work for theology, political science, biology and biomedical ethics.
