Teaching Fellow in Philosophy, Durham University

I am a Teaching Fellow in Philosophy at Durham University. Previously, I completed my PhD at Trinity College Dublin. My research focuses on questions about knowledge, perception, and the mind in the history of philosophy - especially in the work of women philosophers. I'm also interested in the ways that philosophy can contribute to public discourse.
