Research interest: I work on the philosophy of action and on the philosophy of criminal law. I am interested in both what features a person’s action must have if it is to be free and something for which she is justly held responsible, and, also, whether or not human beings’ actions generally have those features. The first of these questions is philosophical; the second is empirical.
