As a teacher I have dealt with most subjects within practical philosophy: Ethics, metaethics, political philosophy, philosophy of religion, aesthetics, and philosophical methods. I have also been teaching in theoretical philosophy, and on various courses in applied and professional ethics for nurses, engineers, university teachers and other professions.

My research interests are mainly within the intersection between philosophy of action and moral philosophy.

Associate editor Ethical Theory and Moral Practice 2009 - 2016.

Head of Department 2008 - 2014.
