Project Description:  I recently completed a PhD in philosophy at the LSE with a thesis on epistemic democracy. I am interested in ‘social epistemic mechanisms’, that is, institutions and procedures that allow groups of agents to track the truth. I focus in particular on political decision-making. My current research is focused on developing an epistemic account of deliberative democracy.
