Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership - Student Profiles


I finished my PhD in Sep 2019, and I'm now working as a fixed-term lecturer at UCL. My research focuses on two areas:

(i) Kant. What role do epistemic norms play in Kant's account of how the mind represents the world?

(ii) Emotions and moral epistemology. Should we form moral beliefs on the basis of emotion, or should try to minimize their influence?
