I am currently working on questions related to responsibility for collective harm problems. These are cases where it seems that no one makes a difference for the outcome, but when enough agents act in a certain way, there are problematic consequences. I am particularly interested in responsibility for harms that is not the result of a collective act, such as global warming, overfishing and injustices in the global garment industry. More broadly, I work on question pertains to responsibility, reasons, causality and vagueness. Philosophers I currently take a special interest in include but is not limited to Shelly Kagan, Julia Nefsky, Carolina Sartorio, Christopher Kutz, Iris Marion Young, Rosanna Keefe och John Broome. I have also taken an interest in Derek Parfit's work On What Matters (2011), especially in the relation between the metaethical view and the moral principles Parfit advocates in this work.
