Rowan Mellor

I am a Leverhulme postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto.

My research centres mainly on issues in moral and political philosophy. My postdoctoral project concentrates on notions of collective rationality. My doctoral thesis focussed on questions surrounding structural injustice. In particular, it addresses conceptual problems which arise when harm is caused collectively by the actions of many individuals.

I have also written on collective and vicarious responsibility, joint agency, explanation in the social sciences, and excuses.
