Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership - Student Profiles



I started my PhD at the HPS in Cambridge in october 2014, and successfully passed my viva in March 2018. In my thesis, I argue that non-epistemic values and aims do and should play a particularly substantial role in species classifications. 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).
