I am a Fellow and Tutor in Philosophy at St Hilda's College, Oxford and an Associate Professor in Philosophy at the University of Oxford. My research focuses primarily on questions in the philosophy of mind and cognitive science, and the philosophy of psychiatry, but it extends to issues in epistemology and the philosophy of science.
For the 2023-2024 academic year, I will hold a British Academy Mid-Career Fellowship to work on a project called The Dynamics of Delusion. Among other things, the project will involved a monthly seminar series at St Hilda's College, which is open to anyone interested. More information about the project can be found on this page.
Aside from delusional thinking, I am interested in questions about self-knowledge and our knowledge of other minds, and about the nature of self-consciousness. I am also very curious about the ways in which people think about what is possible.
Before coming to St HIlda's, I was a Birmingham Fellow at the University of Birmingham and a Lecturer in Philosophy at King's College London. I also previously held an Andrew Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship at Oxford.
