Delft University of Technology Section: Values, Technology and Innovation Faculty: Technology, Policy and Management
I am a lecturer in ethics and the philosophy of technology at TU Delft. My research covers foundational topics about the nature of morality, moral change, and moral knowledge. I take an interdisciplinary approach to these questions and use resources from metaethics, epistemology, anthropology, and moral psychology in pursuit of answers.
Before coming to Delft, I completed my PhD at Utrecht University. I was also a Visiting Fellow at Columbia University, Harvard University, and Oxford University during my PhD. Earlier still, before coming to Utrecht, I worked as a management consultant at Atos Consulting in Munich.
My research is at the intersection of metaethics (the foundations of ethics), epistemology (the foundations of knowledge and justified belief), and moral psychology. I have published on the (meta-)ethical implications of evolutionary explanations of morality. My current projects are a non-objectivist account of norm change, experimental work on folk conceptions of moral objectivity, and topics in the ethics of technology (related to social media) and business ethics.
