Hello, and welcome to my website!
I am Louise, a professional copy-editor, as well as doctoral scholar in Philosophy at Cambridge University. Here, I specialise in Kant's moral psychology, supervised by Angela Breitenbach, Richard Holton, and Rae Langton. My research to date has focussed in particular on moral psychology in the history of philosophy. I graduated top of my class in Philosophy at King's College London in 2016, writing my research dissertation on Platonic moral psychology. I was awarded the Keeling Scholarship at UCL to pursue my ancient interests further on their two-year MPhil Stud. However, since my goal was to specialise (sooner rather than later) on Kant, I instead chose to pursue a one-year Masters in Ancient Philosophy at the University of Oxford. There, I worked with Professor Terry Irwin on Socratic moral psychology (awarded Distinction).
From 2018 onwards, I am the Boustany Cambridge Pembroke Scholar in Philosophy at Pembroke College, Cambridge. My research on Kant's account of moral exemplarity is fully funded by Pembroke College, the Cambridge Trust, and the Boustany Foundation of Monaco and Switzerland. In the meantime, I have published on Kant's moral philosophy, and have an article (with Constantine Sandis) on moral hydraulics in Plato (see Publications).
My non-academic passions include veganism (particularly vegan pizza), American Things, and my pookiers (Meno, Timaeus, Diotima, and Mrongovius). I am married to Humean philosopher, and all-round legend, Professor Constantine Sandis.
