Sandy Grant is a Cambridge philosopher. She grew up in the countryside and was educated at one of England's cathedral schools before matriculating at Queens' College Cambridge. After taking several degrees she started teaching at the University in 1994 as Munro Fellow at Queens' and giving lectures in Tripos. In her subsequent academic career she worked principally in Cambridge and London, achieving her goal of having a Professorial Chair and a baby by the age of 40. She still teaches in Tripos and for the Kings-Pembroke Faculty.
Sandy has given invited talks at numerous Universities, for instance at Oxford, Berkeley, Delhi and Melbourne. She has taught courses for ICE for several years and also tutors for dissertations. She is committed to the idea that philosophy is for everyone. To that end, she appears on programmes such as Start the Week and Womens' Hour and writes for the newspapers.

Sandy's areas of philosophical interest are broad but she has published predominantly in moral, social and political philosophy. She is currently writing a philosophy book called 'Dare!'
