Biography

I am a Leverhulme early career fellow in philosophy, based in the School of Social, Political, and Global Studies. I work in the philosophy of linguistics, especially on the ways in which a correct account of contemporary linguistic methodology can inform traditional debates in the philosophy of language, mind, and science.

Previously, I have been a lecturer at Reading University and the University of California, Los Angeles, where I completed my PhD.
