I am a Lecturer in Philosophy at the Faculty of Philosophy and Merton College, University of Oxford. Previously, I had a similar position at St Anne's College, Oxford, and before that I worked as a University Teacher and a Postdoctoral Researcher in Philosophy at the University of Glasgow. My PhD is also from the University of Glasgow.
I specialise in metaphysics, philosophy of mind and (a bit of) philosophy of science, working mostly in various intersections of these three areas, such as metaphysics of mind, metaphysics of science, philosophy of the special sciences, and inter-level metaphysics. I have broader research interests in philosophy, including issues in epistemology, philosophy of cognitive science, and applied ethics.
I am one of the organisers of the Oxford Metaphysics of Consciousness Seminar.
