Biography:

I started my PhD at the HPS in Cambridge in october 2014. Before coming to Cambridge, I did a BA in Philosophy (KU Leuven), an MA in Philosophy (KU Leuven), an MPhil in Philosophy (KU Leuven) and an MA in Cognition and Culture (Queen's University Belfast).

I am interested in the role non-epistemic values (should) play in biological classification.
