I am an associate professor at the Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method at the London School of Economics. I work on practical rationality and decision theory, ethics and public policy, and economic methodology. For a glimpse of my work, you can watch this video, read this interview or this one, or this post I wrote for the LSE Philosophy Blog, “How should artificial agents make risky choices on our behalf?”, or this post I wrote for the LSE Business Review, “Can Welfare Economics Avoid Paternalism after the Behavioural Turn?”. Or click on my research page to find out more!

My husband Marius Backmann is also a philosopher.
