I was awarded my PhD from the University of Notre Dame Australia in 2015 for a thesis entitled War Rights and Military Virtues: A Philosophical Reappraisal of Just War Theory, and was the inaugural recipient of the Morris Research Scholarship from Notre Dame. I served as Managing Editor for Solidarity: The Journal for Catholic Social Thought and Secular Ethics, and I was the guest editor of a special issue of Research in Ethical Issues in Organisations. I have published in a range of international peer-reviewed journals, spoken at international conferences, and my writing has been included in several authoritative edited volumes on different areas of applied ethics.
