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 two categories: First, he is working on the nature of desires, and the relationship they have with our behaviour and with the evaluation of our behaviour. This connects with broader interests on topics such as moral motivation, reasons for action, and rationality. Second, he is working on disability: both how we should understand the nature of disability (what do all disabilities have in common?) and also evaluative questions, especially about the relationship between disability and wellbeing.

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