Current Research

Digital knowledge. In 2023 I became a postdoc on the AHRC funded Digital Knowledge research project, which applies the tools of epistemology to solve the practical and theoretical challenges of knowledge in the digital age. My work for this project has focused on threats to knowledge that arise in the online environment. In particular, I am interested in the phenomenon of online knowledge defeat, and in online conspiracy theories.
