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 work on topics in epistemology, ethics, metaphilosophy, social and political philosophy, feminism and post-Kantian philosophy. 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 role of anger in politics, the nature of feminist philosophy, the political implications of the externalist/internalist debate in epistemology, and the genealogical contingency of belief. 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.
