I am a Senior Lecturer in Practical Philosophy. I have previously worked at the Arctic University of Norway (Tromsö), the University of Lund, the Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies, and studied at the University of Oxford, the Central European University (Budapest), and the University of Basel. I specialize in action theory, emotion theory and the ethics and metaphysics of individual and collective responsibility. I teach moral philosophy, aesthetics, practical philosophy broadly construed, and the history of philosophy.
Responsibility, emotions and groupsMy two areas of research are moral responsibility, especially collective responsibility, and the philosophy of emotions. Within the first area, my work has mainly focused on the question whether groups can act and whether they can be held responsible as groups. My recent work has taken up problems such as collective epistemic agency and group-level causation. My other research project studies the connection between emotions and values. Among others, I have written about emotional aspects of forgiveness and the relevance of emotion-based arguments to the possibility of moral dilemmas.
