I am an Associate Professor at the Oxford Philosophy Faculty, and a Tutorial Fellow at Magdalen College. I was previously a Junior Research Fellow at Trinity College Cambridge, a PhD student at MIT, and a BPhil and undergraduate student at Oxford.
Most of my research is in epistemology, sometimes straying into decision theory. I'm particularly interested in debates about epistemic externalism; in issues of 'evidence management' (what kind of control we can/should exert over what evidence we receive); and in their interaction. In thinking about those issues, I've worked on the connection between knowledge and chance, the nature of self-knowledge, epistemic contextualism, and the rationality of risk-aversion.
I also have resarch interests in ethics, metaphysics, and the philosophy of language.
