I am an associate professor at the University of Groningen, a Humboldt research fellow at TU Darmstadt, and a research affiliate of the University of Sydney. I received my PhD in art history and philosophy from the University of Sydney in 2014. Before moving to Groningen in 2016, I experienced modest success as a copywriter, journalist, and magazine editor. 

I am the author of the monograph What Art Does (Rowman & Littlefield 2023) and the editor-in-chief of the Philosophy of the City Journal. Most of my research sits at the fertile delta connecting aesthetics, philosophy of design, philosophy of technology, and political philosophy. I write a lot about cities. I also have devastating opinions about art.
