Hannah Maslen

Non-Stipendiary Research Fellow (Philosophy)
BA MSc DPhil Oxf

Hannah Maslen is the Deputy Director of the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics (Faculty of Philosophy). Hannah works on a wide range of topics in applied philosophy and ethics; from neuroethics, to moral emotions and punishment. 

Hannah is a Principal Investigator on the Horizon 2020 BrainCom project, which aims to develop implantable brain-computer interface technology to restore speech capacity in individuals who have lost the ability to speak. She leads the work package on ‘Ethics, Implants and Society’. 

In 2015, Hannah published a book on remorse and retributive punishment, Remorse, Penal Theory and Sentencing, which tackles the question of whether the remorseful offender should be punished any less harshly – should receive some mitigation of her sentence – on the grounds of her remorse.


Hannah takes undergraduate tutorials for the Philosophy Schools’ FHS Practical Ethics (128) paper. She also co-convenes an option on Ethics and Policymaking for the Blavatnik School’s Masters in Public Policy, and teaches on the new MSt in Practical Ethics
