Career and Education
I was an undergraduate at Leeds University, did the BPhil at Oxford, and then a PhD at Sheffield. My PhD was on the epistemic theory of vagueness. While at Sheffield I also worked for a year as a lecturer on Paradoxes, Mind, and Epistemology.
During my postdoc I have been teaching at Lincoln College: Logic and Language, and 1st year Logic and General Philosophy. I also ran (sometimes co-ran with Anthony Eagle) a group discussing the Philosophy of Probability.
