Short presentation

I completed my PhD in Aesthetics, within the Philosophy Department at Uppsala University. I moved to Sweden after completing my Masters in Philosophy at Durham University.

I am also an Editorial Assistant for the British Journal of Aesthetics.

My research interests encompass issues within analytic aesthetics and epistemology. My doctoral dissertation examines questions of trust within aesthetics. Particularly questions pertaining to the nature and impact of trust in aesthetic experts. My dissertation examines the nature of this relation and how this relation bears on our understanding of aesthetic value and what is value about our aesthetic practices.

Other important research areas that I have explored include issues pertaining to the relationship between aesthetic and moral value, the relationship between aesthetic and intellectual value, the appreciation of narrative arts, music and architecture.
