I have been Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Oxford since 2002.
I work primarily on the history of analytic philosophy, ethics and the philosophy of language.
I have a special interest in a series of questions at the intersection between the philosophy of language, epistemology, metaphysics, the philosophy of science and ethics – questions arising in the works of Wittgenstein and Hume, as well as in contemporary philosophical debate.
These questions come under the umbrella of the research project on the Ethics of Cognition, for which I am Principal Investigator.
