I originally studied philosophy at Adelaide University and then completed a PhD in the philosophy of mind at the Australian National University in Canberra. After two wonderful years as a post-doctoral fellow at Rhodes University in Grahamstown, South Africa, I returned to Australia and taught at the Australian Catholic University (in Brisbane) and Adelaide University. I joined Flinders University in 2011. I have published in philosophy of mind, ethics and philosophy of religion. My book on the problem of evil was published in 2012 by Palgrave Macmillan.
