I am an academic and the founder of Woolf. Previously, at Oxford, I was a member of the Faculty of Philosophy, a member of Wolfson College, and a member of the governing Congregation of the University. I also held a Humboldt Fellowship at the Institut für Philosophie, HU Berlin, during which I worked on the definition and measure of human progress. I was especially interested in how modern universities were created to support progress.
