My main research interests are in the philosophy of fiction and imagination, and I've published widely on these topics. I'm currently completing a book for Oxford University Press on fiction, interpretation and imagination (forthcoming, 2017). I've also recently written two articles on the nature of sexual objectification.

As a student, I did an undergraduate degree in French and Philosophy at Oxford (1991-5), an M.Litt. in Philosophy at St Andrews (1995-6), and a PhD in Philosophy at Leeds (1997-2001). I then spent two years teaching at the University of Lancaster and the University of East Anglia respectively, before being appointed by Sussex in 2003.

I'm also Director of Teaching and Learning for the School of History, Art History and Philosophy.
