View my full research profile

I write and teach mainly in the areas of general jurisprudence and legal argumentation. I am also interested in philosophy of language, metaethics, argumentation theory, logic, rhetoric, the philosophical foundations of criminal law, and philosophical aspects of discrimination.

I joined the University of Edinburgh as a Chancellor’s Fellow in 2012. Before that I was a Fellow of Churchill College, Cambridge, and a PERSP post-doctoral researcher at the University of Girona. I was educated in Lisbon (BA, LLM), and at Oxford (DPhil).

I welcome enquiries from prospective doctoral students interested in any substantive topic in the philosophy of law.
