About Me

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in a joint program between the University of Oslo and the University of St Andrews, where I am affiliated with ConceptLab (Oslo) and Arché (St Andrews). 

I work primarily at the intersection of philosophical methodology and philosophy of language, including related areas in philosophy of mind, social ontology, evolutionary psychology, and feminist theory.

My dissertation brings together and contributes to recent debates on conceptual engineering and social group generics. The overarching research question of my dissertation is the following: Can the pernicious effects of generic statements such as “Blacks are violent,” “Women are submissive,” or “Muslims are terrorists” be ameliorated by applying the method of engineering in philosophy?
