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 me​taphysics, philosophy of mind and (a bit of) philosophy of science, working mostly in various intersections of these three areas (particularly inter-level metaphysics and the metaphysics of emergence). I have broader research interests in philosophy, including issues in epistemology, philosophy of cognitive science, moral philosophy (especially metaethics and applied ethics), and metaphysics of race and social kinds.

I am one of the organisers of the Oxford Metaphysics of Consciousness Seminar
