I’m currently a Postdoctoral Prize Research Fellow in Politics at Nuffield College, Oxford. In January, I’ll be joining the University of Reading as a Lecturer in Political Theory.
My research lies primarily in political philosophy, though it also draws significantly on social epistemology and philosophy of language. My current project explores the epistemic and linguistic obstacles that stand in the way of fruitful democratic discourse, and examines how we might overcome these obstacles. I’m writing a monograph on this topic, entitled Democratic Speech in Divided Times, under contract with OUP.
Before taking up my current position, I completed a PhD in Philosophy at the University of Cambridge, a BPhil in Philosophy at the University of Oxford, and a BSc in Politics and Philosophy at the LSE.
