Simon Wimmer

I'm a third year Philosophy PhD student at the University of Warwick. I work primarily on the relation between knowledge and belief, though I have wider interests in epistemology, philosophy of mind and philosophy of language. My PhD is fully funded by the Centre for Arts Doctoral Research Excellence Scholarship, and I'm supervised by Guy Longworth and Johannes Roessler. From April to June 2018 I worked with Timothy Williamson at Oxford, and in Autumn 2018 I was a graduate research fellow at Toronto, working with Jennifer Nagel. Next Summer I'll be visiting CONCEPT at the University of Cologne, thanks to a DAAD short term research grant.

Before starting my PhD, I completed an MPhil in Philosophy at Warwick with a distinction, for which I won the departmental prize for outstanding performance. I wrote my MPhil thesis 'Rationalising explanations and rationality' under the supervision of Johannes Roessler.

I spent the first part of my life in Vienna, Austria. In 2011 I came to the UK for my undergraduate degree in Politics and Philosophy. I now live in Kenilworth. If you want to know more about me and my research, visit my webpage.
