I arrived at Lund University in 2018 to take up a senior researcher position with the Lund-Gothenburg Responsibility Project; I am also an associate professor of philosophy at West Virginia University. My work on moral responsibility is largely focused on the following topics: the relevance of personal history for present responsibility, the problem(s) of moral luck, the responsibility status of psychopaths, the significance of psychological research on situational influences and attitude attribution, and the role that moral understanding and moral knowledge should play in our responsibility practices. In a more applied vein, I recently published a book on war crimes, War Crimes: Causes, Excuses, and Blame (OUP, co-authored with Jessica Wolfendale). I have published one other book, Moral Responsibility: An Introduction (Polity, 2016).
