Impact and Outreach

 

Fellow, Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (May-August, 2015)

In the Summer 2015 undertook a three month research fellowship at the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST), supported by the AHRC, during which I researched and wrote two policy briefing papers on the effects of cognitive biases on aspects of the justice system.

This opportunity follows a proposal that I wrote based on my research, which was reviewed and accepted by the POST board in January 2015. The resulting papers are available to view here and here.

I wrote an account of my experience at POST, and the contribution that philosophers can make in the realm of science policy, on the Imperfect Cognitions blog. I also talk about the experience in the latter part of this video lecture.

Minorities and Philosophy

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.

London Warwick Mind Forum

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.
