Hello

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, with a brief sojourn in sunny New Jersey at Rutgers, and an undergraduate degree studying law in Glasgow.

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

Recently, I have been thinking about: (i) the justification of democracy, (ii) legal proof, (iii) demographic profiling, and (iv) moral ignorance.

I’m writing a book for Cambridge University Press on Legal Epistemology.

I’m putting together a symposium on ‘The Future of the Trial’ (provisionally) for the Journal of Applied Philosophy. Get in touch if you are/know promising philosophers with work related to the trial process.

NOTE: I’ve had requests about PhD supervision. My current position isn’t indefinite, so instead speak to one of the lovely people listed under ‘Primary Faculty’ on this page. I am, however, happy to chat about my experience of Glasgow, St Andrews, Rutgers, and the LSE.
