I’m a philosopher, currently Fellow of Philosophy & Public Policy in the
Department of Philosophy, Logic & Scientific Method at the London School of Economics.

Before this I lived in a small town by the sea, working in the Arché Philosophical Research Centre at the University of St Andrews.

I have broad philosophical interests, but much of my work concerns where epistemology connects to questions about ethics, law, and politics.

Right now, I am thinking about (i) the justification of democracy, (ii) legal proof, and (iii) demographic profiling and prejudice.
