Biography

I am a Lecturer in the Department of Philosophy. At Aberdeen I have taught courses in Logic, Applied Ethics, Feminist Philosophy, Philosophy with Children and Philosophy of Language.

Most of my research has focused on whether knowledge can arise from non-knowledge, particularly via inference and testimony. I am interested in epistemology more broadly and particularly in its overlap with ethics. I am currently working primarily on epistemic injustice.

I enjoy bringing Philosophy to wider audiences. In this connection, I coordinate several public engagement and outreach initiatives. These include Cafe' Philosophique, the departmental series of public engagement events; 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.
