I'm a philosopher from North Derbyshire, currently a Senior Lecturer in the University of Birmingham's Department of Philosophy. I've been here since September 2013. From October 2020, I will be an Official Fellow of St John's College and Associate Professor in the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Oxford.
Before coming to Birmingham, I was a Fitzjames Research Fellow at Merton College, University of Oxford, and a Jacobsen Fellow at King's College London and the Institute of Philosophy. Before that, I studied for a PhD at Birkbeck, University of London, under the supervision of Dorothy Edgington and Fraser MacBride. I also took a BA and MA in philosophy at the University of Leeds.
My philosophical interests lie at the intersection of metaphysics with philosophy of logic and philosophy of language. You can find out more from the papers on my Research page.
From October 2017 - September 2019, I held an AHRC Leadership Fellowship for a project called "Higher-Order Metaphysics", investigating the metaphysics of higher-order logic and applications of higher-order resources within mainstream metaphysics. I was a Visiting Fellow at ConceptLab in May 2018, and a Visiting Scholar at MIT in Autumn 2018. I currently serve on The Aristotelian Society's Executive Committee and as a Managing Editor for Ergo, an Open Access Journal of Philosophy.
