Areas of interest

My research interests lie in philosophy of language and epistemology. In particular, I am interested in context-sensitivity and the semantics-pragmatics interface, and how this debate can or does inform epistemological debates. More recently, I have also been interested in the extent to which corpus analytics can be used to help answer philosophical questions.

Teaching

I teach the following modules at undergraduate level:

  • Reason and Argument: An introductory module that covers some key informal and formal techniques for identifying and evaluating arguments in philosophy and elsewhere.
  • Meaning and the Mind: This module focuses on some core topics in philosophy of mind and philosophy of language.
  • Ignorance, Doubt, and Relativism: This module focuses on core issues in epistemology, specifically in the theory of knowledge.
