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, metaphilosophy, social and political philosophy, and feminism. I completed my DPhil in 2014 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.) 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. My writing has appeared in the London Review of Books, the Times Literary Supplement, The Nation, The New York Times and TANK.
