Dr Alex Gregory is a Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Southampton.

Alex completed his PhD at the University of Reading in 2011, and lectured there until Summer 2013, when he took up his present post at Southampton.

Research interests

Alex works primarily in ethics. His present research divides broadly into three categories: First, he is working on the role that desires play in explaining and/or justifying behaviour, and related questions about moral motivation and reasons for action. Second, he is working on how reasons for action relate to value. Third, he is beginning to work on the nature of wellbeing, presently focusing primarily on happiness and disability.

He would be happy to supervise PhD students in any of these areas.
