josh-habgood-coote-e1529482771723.jpgI am a Vice-Chancellor’s Fellow at the University of Bristol. At the moment I’m working on a project about group inquiry, looking at building a framework for understanding what’s involved in a group of people answering a question together, as well as thinking about the importance of this process for science and democracy. As part of this project I am affiliated with the Cabot Institute.

Before that, I did my PhD at the St Andrews/Stirling joint programme, where I wrote my thesis about what’s involved in knowing how to do something (write a poem, draw a circle, run a marathon), supervised by Katherine Hawley.

I go by both of my surnames, hyphenated: ‘Habgood-Coote’. (No ‘p’ or ‘e’ in ‘Habgood’, and a surprise silent ‘e’ in ‘Coote’).

My CV is here.

I’m on philpeople, where open access versions of all my papers are.
