I am a philosopher who is currently a Research Fellow on the ERC-funded PERFECT project at the University of Birmingham. From September 2018 I will be Assistant Professor in Philosophy at the University of durham.
My main research interest is in what should be said about the epistemic status of seemingly irrational thoughts, such as those involved in stereotyping and implicit bias and distorted memory beliefs.
I have recently published in Synthese, Pacific Philosophical Quarterly, Philosophical Explorations, Philosophical Topics, Routledge Handbook of Social Epistemology and Routledge Handbook of Philosophy of Discrimination. I have paper, co-authored with L. Bortolotti, forthcoming at Philosophical Studies, another co-authored with Cian O’Donnell forthcoming at Educational Theory, and a single authored paper forthcoming at Episteme. (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.
