I was previously Research Fellow in Medical Methodology on a project called Evaluating Evidence in Medicine (Arts and Humanities Research Council, 2015-2018). In June 2018, I was appointed Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Kent. I work mainly in the philosophy and epistemology of science and medicine. My recent research develops a theory of evidence to help understand how causal claims are established in medicine.

I completed a top-rated 4* Impact Case Study for REF2021. And I am currently working towards another such Impact Case Study for REF2029. (Please see my current Projects for more information.) My work has so far led to changes at the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). As a result, I was shortlisted for a Medical Humanities Award by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and the Wellcome Trust (December, 2020). Most recently, I was awarded the University of Kent’s Prize for Early Career Researcher involved in Knowledge Exchange (June, 2022).

I have convened introductory modules in philosophy, as well as modules on logic, probability and causality, the philosophy of science and medicine, the theory of knowledge and evidence, and the philosophy of mind and language, and artificial intelligence. I have supervised postgraduate work in epistemology, metaphysics, and the philosophy of medicine. And I am currently the Kent Philosophy Department’s Director of Outreach, Recruitment, and Admissions.
