I am Joshua Rowan Thorpe, a philosopher, and a Postdoctoral Research Fellow on the Digital Knowledge project hosted by the University of Glasgow and the University of Aberdeen.
My main research area is epistemology, but I also work on philosophy of mind, philosophy of language, and ethics.

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.
