His research in philosophy centres on the psychological aspects of ethical discourse, considering such questions as whether there is any such thing as a character trait, what makes a desire a sexual desire, what it is to respond to reasons, and whether we are in any way constrained to act consistently. His interest in Sartre centres on Sartre's accounts of affectivity, motivation, freedom, bad faith, alienation, and responsibility.
