About               Research and Writing            Teaching


I am a fellow in philosophy at 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, what sort of metaphysical/epistemological self-conception (realist or anti-realist) is appropriate to political action, and the genealogical contingency of belief. I’m also interested in alternatives to liberalism and capitalism, aesthetic modernism, the politics of sex and gender, the long-form essay and food.

I’ll be joining the UCL Philosophy Department in Autumn 2015. I write occasionally for the London Review of Books.
