Research Areas:

* Moral psychology (moral responsibility)
* Moral epistemology (moral testimony, moral expertise, moral understanding)
* Feminist philosophy (invisible labour): I’m currently thinking about how we gain moral knowledge, what excuses are and what they tell us about the nature of moral responsibility, and about work: What is seen as "work", how work gets counted, and how this contributes to gendered inequalities.

"My research seeks to understand the practices that lie at the center of our moral lives: how we give and receive moral advice, how we blame, forgive, make excuses, how we praise and give credit. Such understanding is valuable for its own sake but it can also point us towards ways in which those practices may contribute to unjust social arrangements and should be reformed." (Paulina Sliwa)
