  • Early Modern Philosophy (esp. Hume)

Research Description

My main research interests are in the History of Modern Philosophy, with a focus on the British Empiricists and Hume in particular. I am currently working on a project aimed at recovering the work of Lady Mary Shepherd, a figure coming at the end of the Scottish Enlightenment who is critical of Hume's account of causation.
