I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in Philosophy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). My project, funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation, examines the epistemic risks of social media for how we form political beliefs.

Before coming to Boston, I completed a PhD at the University of Edinburgh. My PhD thesis investigated evolutionary debunking arguments in ethics, supervised by Matthew Chrisman, Duncan Pritchard  and Geoff Sayre-McCord. Prior to that, I attended the University of St. Andrews (MA Hons.) and Oxford University (B.Phil.). During the academic year 2016/17, I was a Visiting Lecturer at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
