I am Assistant Professor in Ethics at VU Amsterdam and was previously a Lecturer in Political Philosophy at the University of Bayreuth.

My primary research focuses on the ethics of market-based interactions like exploitation, fraud, and similar actions. This work is partly supported by a VENI grant from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).  I have also written on love, metaethics, and Kant. You can find links to my work in my CV.

I teach courses in the PPE Programme at the VU’s JS Mill College where I am also the programme coordinator for Philosophy and interdisciplinary courses. My office hours are by appointment and you can email me at b.r.ferguson@vu.nl.
