My PhilPapers Profile
My Google Scholar Profile
I'm an Associate Professor in philosophy at the University of Southampton. I'm also an Associate Editor of Analysis, and a trustee of the British Society of Aesthetics. Before joining Southampton in 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 the type/token distinction, fictional characters, material objects, persistence) and the philosophy of logic and language (conditionals, modality, empty names, predication, ambiguity, truth in fiction), and the related areas of aesthetics.
In 2016/17 I held a British Academy Mid-Career Fellowship for research on the Metaphysics of Repeatable Artworks. In semester 1 2015/16, I was a junior fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study, CEU, Budapest.
I am happy to supervise graduate students in any of my current research areas broadly construed.
