I'm a philosopher at the University of Southampton. Before joining Southampton in September 2013, I taught for two years at Somerville College, Oxford. Previously, I took an MA, MPhil, and PhD in Philosophy at University College London. More details are available in my CV.
My main interests are in metaphysics (repeatable artworks and types, fictional characters, material objects, persistence) and the philosophy of logic and language (conditionals, modality, empty names, ambiguity, truth in fiction). Lots of these interests are also topics in aesthetics, and I am a trustee of the British Society of Aesthetics.
In semester 1 2015/16, I'm a junior fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study, CEU, Budapest, where I'll be working on a book on fictional characters. In semester 2, I'll be teaching courses on Puzzles of Art & Literature, and on Metaphysics.
I am happy to supervise students in any of my current research areas broadly construed. I am also Graduate Admissions Tutor for Philosophy at Southampton. Anyone who is interested in pursuing graduate work in philosophy at Southampton is very welcome to contact me.
