I joined the IDEA Centre in September 2012 after completing my PhD in Applied Ethics at Edinburgh University.
Before returning to education, I trained as an accountant and auditor and worked for Deloitte for seven years. I am a chartered accountant (FCA).
I am interested in all areas of applied ethics but my particular topics of focus are the ethics of tax avoidance and the ethics of economic sanctions.<h4>Research projects</h4> <p>Any research projects I'm currently working on will be listed below.
