My research focuses on philosophical methods. In particular, I ask questions about the place of intuitions and empirical research in philosophy. 

My research also touches on issues in epistemology, ethics, free will and moral responsibility, philosophy of language, metaphysics and aesthetics.

I am also a founder member of Experimental Philosophy Group UK.


I regularly give talks at conferences and smaller events. Follow the links to see a selection of my talks for academic and public audiences.

Current Projects

I have a number of ongoing research projects at various stages. I have ongoing paper projects on novel methods in philosophy, use of intuitions in philosophy, aesthetic and moral testimony, the habits of climate change experts, epistemic contextualism, epistemic consequentialism, and epistemic injustice. I am also working on an introductory book on philosophical methodology.
