Accepting PhDs



I am Senior Lecturer in the Department of Philosophy.

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 welcome supervision inquiries from prospective postgraduate students interested in knowledge from non-knowledge, analytic epistemology broadly construed, epistemic injustice, and feminist issues 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 table-tennis and football and walk my dog.
