I joined the University of Southampton in late 2023 as a post-doctoral Research Fellow on Professor Genia Schönbaumsfeld's ERC-Advanced Grant, The Ethics of Doubt: Kierkegaard, Scepticism, and Conspiracy Theory. 

Before coming to Southampton, I was a PhD student and Teaching Associate at the University of Nottingham. Prior to my PhD, I studied for an MA at UCL and a BA at the University of Reading. 

On the Ethics of Doubt project, I'm investigating the relationship betwen virtue (and vice) epistemology, conspiracy theories, and scepticism. 

More broadly, I am interested in epistemology, ethics, normativity, the philosophy of AI, and feminist philosophy.
