The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) fund world-class, independent researchers in a wide range of subjects from history and archaeology to philosophy and languages. They also fund more contemporary research including the design and effectiveness of digital content and the impact of artificial intelligence.

AHRC is part of UK Research and Innovation, a new body that works in partnership with universities, research organisations, businesses, charities, and government to create the best possible environment for research and innovation to flourish. Operating across the whole of the UK with a combined budget of more than £6 billion, UK Research and Innovation brings together the seven Research Councils, Innovate UK and a new organisation, Research England.

His research is in ethics, in particular in moral psychology, and he has published on topics including neo-Aristotelianism and child development, the ethical dimensions of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy, the moral emotions, love and the virtues, Nietzsche's ethics, the philosophy of mental health and mental illness, literature and philosophy, and Wittgenstein.

From 2010-15 he convened the Meaning and Mindedness: Encounters between Philosophy and Psychoanalysis seminars at the Tavistock Clinic, London, and was Principal Investigator of the Wellcome/ISSF project ‘Therapeutic Conflicts: Co-Producing Meaning in Mental Health’(2014-16) and of the AHRC network ‘The Development of Character: Attachment Theory and the Moral Psychology of Vice and Virtue’.
