Since 2015 I have been Lecturer in Philosophy at La Trobe University in Melbourne Australia. From 2012-December 2014 I was Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of East Anglia. Before joining the UEA I was an AHRC Research Fellow at the Arché Philosophical Research Centre at The University of St Andrews on an Intuitions and Philosophical Methodology  project. I completed my PhD in philosophy at the RSSS Philosophy Program at The Australian National University under the supervision of Daniel Stoljar and David Chalmers.
 
My research addresses foundational questions in epistemology about the nature and sources of different kinds of knowledge, and the import of these issues for debates in the philosophy of mind and language, and metaphilosophy. A great deal of my research to date has been on the nature of knowledge-how and its relationship to knowledge-that, as well as the implications of different views of this relationship for debates in the philosophy of mind. I also work on issues concerning philosophical methodology, and in this area I have recently contributed chapters to the Oxford Handbook of Philosophical Methodology and the Palgrave Handbook of Philosophical Methods.

Recently, I have been working on issues concerning testimony and different forms of knowledge-wh, including both knowledge-how and 'what it is like'-knowledge. Related to this work my project “Transformative Experience and Testimony” was awarded a Research Grant (2016-2017) from the Philosophy of Transformative Experience funding initiative, part of the Experience Project run jointly by the University of Notre Dame and the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill.
