I am Senior Lecturer in the Department of Philosophy and Undergraduate Programme Coordinator.

Much of my research has focused on whether knowledge can arise from non-knowledge. I am interested in epistemology more broadly and particularly in its overlap with ethics. I am currently thinking about epistemic injustice and gender equality in sports.

I enjoy bringing Philosophy to wider audiences. In this connection, I coordinate several public engagement and outreach initiatives. These include the Aberdeen Philosophy in Education Group (APEG), a training programme for Philosophy students to facilitate philosophy discussion in primary/secondary school classrooms, and the Philosophy with Children course, a biannual one-day Continuing Professional Development course for primary and secondary schoolteachers.

I carried out my doctoral studies at St Andrews and Aberdeen. Before that, I took my M.Litt. at St Andrews and my BA at Sheffield.

In my spare time I like to play football and walk my dogs.
