I arrived at the Institut in 2009 to work as a postdoctoral research fellow on the Knowledge, Metacognition and Modes of Justification (KNOWJUST) project. Previously, I was a PhD student and then a non-stipendiary lecturer at the University of Edinburgh.

I am interested in a range of topics in epistemology and philosophy of mind, including epistemic normativity, mental agency and doxastic non-voluntarism.
