Biography

I am Professor of Philosophy and Deputy Director of the COGITO Epistemology Research Centre

I also sit on the Executive Committee of the Aristotelian Society, Management Committee of the British Society for Theory of Knowledgethe  Steering Committee of the Social Epistemology Networkand on the Editorial Board of the Philosophical Quarterly.

I am the winner of the Young Epistemologist Prize 2021

I am Principal Investigator on a major research project entitled 'KnowledegLab: Knowledge-First Social Epistemology', and funded by a European Research Council 1.5 million Euro grant over 5 years. The project develops a novel research programme for social epistemology (2021-2025).

I am also co-investigator on the Leverhulme Trust-funded  'Virtue Epistemology of Trust' project (2020-2023) and a Principal Investigator on the 'Dimensions of Wellbeing' industry-funded project (2021-2026).

Before this I held a prestigious Mind Research Fellowship from the Mind Association for my 'Epistemic Norms and Epistemic Functions' project (2018-2019).

I am the author of two monographs – ‘Shifty Speech and Independent Thought: Epistemic Normativity in Context’ (Oxford University Press, 2021) and 'Sharing Knowledge: A Functionalist Account of Assertion' (with C. Kelp, Cambridge University Press, 2021). 

My edited volume 'Reasons, Justification, and Defeat' (with Jessica Brown) came in 2021 with Oxford University Press. I also have more than 50 articles and book chapters published in internationally leading journals, such as e.g. Noûs, Philosophy and Phenomenological Research, and The Journal of Philosophy and in anthologies of prestigious publishing houses such as Oxford University Press and Cambridge Universiy Press.
