Biography:

I’m a third year Philosophy PhD student at the University of Warwick, visiting Toronto for the Fall 2018 to work with Jennifer Nagel. I work primarily on the relation between knowledge and belief, though I have wider interests in epistemology, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of language. At Warwick I’m supervised by Guy Longworth and Johannes Roessler, and in Spring 2018 I worked with Timothy Williamson at Oxford.

Before starting my PhD, I completed an MPhil in Philosophy at Warwick with a distinction, for which I won the departmental prize for outstanding performance. I wrote my MPhil thesis under the supervision of Johannes Roessler. If you want to know more about me and my research, visit my webpage.

Research Interests:

Epistemology, Philosophy of Language, Philosophy of Mind
