We are Tilburg University

Bio

I am a British academic philosopher living in the Netherlands. My research and teaching focuses on ethics, especially ethical issues in business, capitalism and academic economics.

Before coming to Tilburg I held lectureships at the philosophy or economics departments of Erasmus University Rotterdam, the University of Groningen, Leiden University, and the University of Witten/Herdecke. Before that, I studied natural sciences and philosophy at the University of Durham in the UK (BA & MA) followed by an MA and PhD in philosophy and economics at the Erasmus Institute for Philosophy and Economics in Rotterdam.
