A sunny day at Lords

I’m a second year PhD philosophy student at the University of Nottingham. My primary supervisor is Dr Ian James Kidd and my secondary supervisors are Dr Aness Webster and Professor Quassim Cassam. My research is funded by the Midlands4Cities doctoral award.

Before starting my PhD, I studied for my MA at UCL and my BA at the University of Reading.

I’m interested in a wide range of topics in philosophy, but I have spent most of my time studying feminist philosophy and moral philosophy. In recent years, I’ve developed a healthy fascination with intellectual character vices and epistemology more widely.

Broadly, intellectual vices are character traits, attitudes, or ways of thinking that reflect poorly on how we think, and they hinder our abilities to gain things such as knowledge, true beliefs, or understanding. These are the main focus of my PhD thesis and research.
