I am a Senior Lecturer in Philosophy and the Head of Education for the School of Philosophy, Theology and Religion at the University of Birmingham. I work on issues in the philosophy of mind and psychology, in particular, belief, delusion, and implicit bias. Between January 2021 and July 2023, I will be the PI of an AHRC-funded project Deluded by Experience (working with Paul Noordhof as Co-I).
I joined the Department of Philosophy at Birmingham in 2013 as a part-time Research Fellow on the AHRC-funded Epistemic Innocence Project. Between 2014 and 2016 I was a Research Fellow on the ERC-funded project PERFECT (Pragmatic and Epistemic Role of Factually Erroneous Cognitions and Thoughts). Between 2016 and 2019 I was Lecturer in Philosophy.
I completed my PhD in Philosophy in 2014 at the University of York.
