Doctorant de Fabrice Teroni et de Conor McHugh


My research revolves around the notion of correctness and its ramifications in normative and metanormative theory. I am interested in what it is for something to be correct or incorrect, how judgments of correctness provide us with normative guidance, and how correctness relates to other normative concepts such as goodness, norms, and reasons. These questions are at the centre of my SNSF Doc.CH project 'On the Normativity of Correctness' supervised by Prof. Fabrice Teroni and Prof. Conor McHugh.

My other research interests include topics in value theory such as the varieties of goodness and the fitting-attitude analysis of value, as well as topics in moral psychology, in particular aretaic evaluations and the nature of caring and needing. I am also interested in metanormative theory, and more precisely in the relationship between natural goodness and value-first accounts of normativity.
