I am a postdoctoral research fellow in philosophy at the University of Oslo, affiliated with CSMN and ConceptLab. I completed my PhD at the University of St Andrews in 2015, where I was affiliated with the Arché Philosophical Research Centre. I was supervised by Herman Cappelen and Brian Weatherson, and my examiners were Elizabeth Fricker and Patrick Greenough.
I currently have two main projects. The first focuses on communication, especially defective communication and the conditions for knowledge-yielding communication. This work lies at the intersection of the philosophy of language and epistemology, although it also touches on issues in social philosophy and the philosophy of mind. My second project focuses on the nature of knowledge. In particular I am interested in epistemic luck, knowledge-how, and alternatives to process based views of knowledge.
I also have more general research interests in epistemology and the philosophy of language, together with particular topics in metaphysics, the philosophy of mind/psychology, the philosophy of action, and social philosophy. You can find my CV here.
