I was working on a PhD in set theory when I got interested in philosophy, and in particular in the problem of mathematical truth. I wrote my dissertation on the debate between correspondence theories and deflationism, and wrote some papers on that topic. Through thinking about truth, realism, and anti-realism, I became interested in metaethics — in particular on dilemmas, consistency, coherence and norms of moral reasoning. In addition to metaethics, I also work in the philosophy of sex, focusing on questions of sexual objectification and autonomy, and I have an interest in the question of what makes humanistic methods distinctive.
