I studied for my BA in Developmental Psychology, and my MA in Philosophy, at Sussex. My DPhil in Philosophy at Oxford was on 'Needs in the Philosophy of History: Rousseau to Marx'. From 1990 to 1994 I taught Philosophy at Birkbeck College, University of London and at the University of Bristol. I have been teaching at Sussex since 1994.

I have taught courses in Hegel, Marx, Kant, social and political philosophy, history of political thought, and ethics in the BA and MA in Philosophy, and in the MA in Social and Political Thought.

I am willing to supervise research students in Rousseau, Fichte, Hegel, Marx, recognition theory, theories of collective intentionality, and contemporary political philosophy.

I am a member of the organising group of the Marx and Philosophy Society.
