Participation and teaching

Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) is an international graduate student-led initiative which aims to examine and address issues of minority participation in academic philosophy. I was director of the UK Region from January 2015 – October 2016.

Held three times a year, the London Warwick Mind Forum hosts paper presentations and responses from graduates working in Philosophy of Mind from KCL, UCL and The University of Warwick. I was the KCL co-ordinator from March 2014 – March 2015.

I was a Graduate Teaching Assistant in the Department of Philosophy at KCL for the following modules:

  • Epistemology II
  • Philosophy of Mind I
  • Neuroscience & the Mind
  • Political Philosophy II (Theories of Freedom)
  • Ethics I

From 2012-2014, I was a tutor for the Brilliant Club, which places PhD students in schools serving low participation communities (those which do not send many pupils to university) to deliver programmes based on their research to help pupils secure places at highly selective universities. Here, I developed a course on free will and cognitive science based on my own research, and led classes with KS3, KS4 and KS5 pupils.
