I'm a Reader at the Department of Philosophy of the University of Aberdeen, a Visiting Professor at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy, and a Member of the Research Group From Perception to Belief and Back Again at the University of Bochum (Germany).

I graduated with an MLitt in Logic & Metaphysics from St Andrews in 1998 and with a PhD in Philosophy from King's College London in 2003. After my graduation with a PhD, I had teaching positions at University College London and King's College London. I did research in formal epistemology at the Zukunftskolleg of the University of Konstanz (Germany) and research in metaphysics and philosophical logic at the Centre for Time of the University of Sydney. My first Lectureship was at La Trobe University (Melbourne), which I left for a Lectureship at Aberdeen in 2009. I was a member of the steering committee of the Northern Institute of Philosophy at the University of Aberdeen till March 2013. I have been a Visiting Professor at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy since August 2014, and a member of the Research Group From Perception to Belief and Back Again, University of Bochum, since September 2019.
