I am a postdoctoral fellow attached to the BBVA-funded project "Public Controversy: A Social Epistemological Analysis", led by Dr. Fernando Broncano-Berrocal.  Before joining LOGOS I held a postdoc at the COGITO Epistemology Research Group, University of Glasgow. Before that, I completed my PhD at the University of Edinburgh, where I worked as a Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher as part of DIAPHORA.

My current research is concerned with understanding the conceptual connection between epistemic trust and epistemic risk, with particular focus on pluralist accounts of the nature of risk. My previous research interests were on epistemic closure and the failure of transmission of warrant across inference. I am also interested in epistemic norms, assertion, knowledge-first epistemology and scepticism.
