Professor of Philosophy at the University of Birmingham.
Lisa works in the philosophy of psychology and psychiatry and has a special interest in the relationship between mental health and rationality.
She is currently leading a major project (PERFECT 2014-2019), funded by the European Research Council. The leading research question is whether false and irrational beliefs or inaccurate emotions can have any positive contributions to make to wellbeing or agency. Lisa’s latest book, Irrationality, was published by Polity in 2014.
