Overview

I'm a lecturer in the Philosophy department at the University of Queensland. I also currently manage a Leverhulme International Network on Set Theoretic Pluralism. Before I was here, I was a member of the Northern Institute of Philosophy at the University of Aberdeen. Overlapping with that, I was a Marie Curie Fellow on a project with Philip Welch in the School of Mathematics at the University of Bristol. And before that, I worked on the Foundations of Logical Consequence project with Arché at the University of St Andrews.

Broadly, my research is devoted to problems involving:

  • truth;
  • infinity; and
  • possibility.

I am interested in using formal techniques to make questions precise and to get a better understanding of what is involved in solving these problems. My work is presently focused philosophy of set theory, paradox classification, semantic theories of truth and comparative foundations.
