Profile

I have been a member of the Department since September 2001; after a two-year lectureship at University College London, where I took my doctorate.

Research interests

The focus of my research is largely social epistemology. The topics that I am interested in, and have written on, include: the epistemology of testimony; the role trust plays in our epistemic and collective lives; the relationship between epistemic and practical reasons; the collective and collaborative dimensions of knowledge; the reactive attitudes that figure in communication; the liberty we have to believe others; the rational response to disagreement; our relationship to other ways of thinking and the nature of conversion; communicating how things feel to us; and the relationship between belief, faith and trust. I have a passing interest in the philosophy of sport.
