I am an Associate Professor in Philosophy at Durham University. I work on topics in social philosophy, philosophy of psychology, and feminist epistemology. My recent research focuses on stereotyping, implicit bias, epistemic injustice and distorted memories.

Previous to arriving in Durham, I studied for my PhD at the University of Sheffield, had a postdoc position on the ERC-funded Project PERFECT in Birmingham, and held teaching positions at the University of Bristol and University of Glasgow.

My first book How Stereotypes Deceive Us has recently been released by Oxford University Press. My other academic work has been published in Synthese, Philosophical Studies, Episteme and Journal of American Philosophical Association among other places.

From January 2022, I will be an Associate Editor at the journal Philosophical Psychology.

When not working I love playing with and caring for my two small children, run whenever I can, enjoy attempting to garden, and am extremely comfortable drinking a cup of tea in a cafe.
