Background

I came to the University of Edinburgh in 2021 as a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow, doing a project on Kant’s inescapable ethics of belief. At present, my research focuses on two areas:

(i) Normativity in Kant’s philosophy of mind. How is mental representation possible? I think Kant has interesting arguments for the claim that normativity is a key ingredient.

(ii) Emotions and moral epistemology. Can emotions provide us with ethical knowledge? I’m working on a set of articles defending a qualified “yes”, by spelling out how emotion-based beliefs can be reliable.
