About me

I am a Fellow in the LSE Department of Government and before that I received my PhD in the Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method. I divide my research time between the following projects. Firstly, I investigate whether large scientific collaborations can be treated as group agents. Secondly, I collaborate with the SWARM project and I develop and test rubrics for evaluating the quality of reasoning in intelligence reports. Thirdly, I argue for a more inclusive policy for bathroom access. Finally, I work on an abstract model explaining ideological polarization.
