In 2022-2023 I will be a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Center for Philosophy of Religion at the University of Notre Dame where I will conduct research on my new project 'The moral and epistemic virtue of imagination in the age of anxiety.'
Previously, I worked at the University of Bristol as a Lecturer (Fixed term, 2021-22) and did a PhD in Philosophy at the University of St Andrews (SASP) on the relationship between believing and imagining. I was a member of Arché Research Centre (graduated in 2021). Patrick Greenough and Justin Snedegar were my PhD supervisors. Andy Egan and Derek Ball were my PhD examiners and I also worked with Joëlle Proust at Institut Jean Nicod (CNRS, ENS/EHESS, Paris) in 2016-17. My PhD research was funded by SASP, Arché (travel bursaries), and the Royal Institute of Philosophy.
When I'm not doing philosophy, I usually drink too much coffee and wander around new places. These days, that involves exploring my surroundings closer to home in Edinburgh and Bristol. But on this photo, I'm exploring Princeton with a friend who was himself a visitor there. We had a coffee on the go, and talked about ideas, movies, and some of the great minds who had resided there. I love days like this best.
