Personal profile

Research interests

At the moment I’m working on a project on group inquiry. This project aims to connect work in social epistemology, group action, and the semantics of questions to develop an account of the activity of collectively producing knowledge. Group inquiry is an extremely important process in scientific collaboration and democratic deliberation, and I hope to build some of the theoretical framework for understanding its role in both contexts.

My PhD thesis was about the nature of knowledge-how, and explored a number of issues about how to best integrate linguistic and philosophical arguments about the nature of knowledge-how. I thought about what the point of having a concept of knowledge-how is, what that might tells us about the normative role of knowledge-how, and I tried to advance a novel account of knowledge-how.
