Consultancy / Teaching Research interests:

There are three broad questions related to scientific knowledge that intrigue me:

What is scientific knowledge and how is it attained? Can it be attained?

How is scientific knowledge best taught in higher education?

What role does scientific knowledge play in western society, for example in relation to politics?

To answer these questions I draw on insights from disparate disciplines such as philosophy of science, psychology and sociology of knowledge, and the scholarship of teaching and learning.
