My research concerns the political and social aspects of epistemology, specifically the effects of oppression and power on epistemic justification. So far my work has focused on predominantly theoretical concerns, exploring the best way to characterise and combine different aspects of two views known as feminist standpoint theory and hinge epistemology, but I am increasingly interested the practical implications of these views, such as what their insights about epistemic justification tell us about how to organise institutions which produce and disseminate knowledge.
