I am a philosopher who specialises in philosophy of psychology and epistemology. From October 2015 I will be a Research Fellow on the ERC-funded PERFECT project at the University of Birmingham.
My main research interest is in what should be said about seemingly irrational thoughts, such as those that are the result of automatic and associative thinking, like implicit biases.
In my future research, on the PERFECT project, I will be focusing on the epistemic status of distorted memories, including the positive and negative impact that they can have on the accuracy of perception.
I have recently published in Synthese and Pacific Philosophical Quarterly (for details see Papers section).
I studied for my PhD at the University of Sheffield, where I was fortunate enough to be supervised by Stephen Laurence and Christopher Hookway and to be funded by the British Society for the Philosophy of Science.
While studying for my PhD in Sheffield, I also had the opportunity to work at the Hang Seng Centre for Cognitive Studies and on the exciting and innovative Culture and the Mind Project based there.
I have previously taught at the University of Glasgow, University of Bristol and University of Sheffield.
