Personal profile

Research Interests

Epistemology, Philosophy of Language, Philosophy of Mind, Social and Feminist Philosophy


I'm a senior lecturer in the philosophy department at the University of Edinburgh. I joined the department in September 2012 as a Chancellor's Fellow and I was a lecturer from June 2015 to July 2018. Previously I was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Northern Institute of Philosophy at the University of Aberdeen. I did my PhD at the University of Texas at Austin, where I was supervised by Mark Sainsbury, and my undergraduate and masters at the University of St Andrews. I work mostly on issues in epistemology, particularly where it intersects with other areas such as the philosophies of language and mind and social and feminist philosophy.
