Doctoral Candidate - Doctor of Philosophy

Biography

I am a PhD candidate in Philosophy working under the supervision of Tim Mulgan and Emily Parke. My current research focuses on the concept of agency, specifically when applied to groups of individuals. I'm investigating whether, and to what extent, two areas in philosophy (moral/political philosophy and philosophy of biology) might be mutually informative. I am a member of Te Pūnaha Matatini (Whānau), with an interest in exploring cases in which the data of individuals is aggregated and subsequently presented as a group property. I am currently employed as a part time Teaching Fellow at the University of Auckland.
