About               Research and Writing            Teaching


I’m a lecturer (assistant professor) in the UCL Philosophy Department and a fellow of All Souls College, Oxford. I’m an epistemologist who also works on topics in metaphilosophy, ethics, social and political philosophy, and feminism. I recently completed my DPhil under the supervision of John Hawthorne and Tim Williamson on the limits of knowledge, and what these limits imply for our ethical and philosophical ambitions. I’m currently thinking about the political implications of the externalist/internalist debate in epistemology, and the genealogical contingency of belief -- I’m writing a book about the latter, supported by a Leverhulme Research Fellowship. I’m also interested in alternatives to liberalism and capitalism, the politics of sex and gender, animals, the long-form essay and food.

I’m an associate editor of the journal Mind. I write occasionally for the London Review of Books and the Times Literary Supplement.
