Biography

Prior to coming to Aberdeen, I was a post-doc with the PERSP project and a member of LOGOS at the University of Barcelona. Before that I was a Junior Research Fellow at Oriel College, Oxford. I received my PhD in 2008 from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. My dissertation advisor was Phillip Bricker.

Research

Research Interests

I have on-going research projects in philosophy of time, self-locating content, persistence and modality.  I'm also interested in a wide range of other topics in metaphysics, philosophy of mind and language such as free will, personal identity, physicalism, semantic content, belief content, the metaphysics of properties and puzzling over the Surprise Exam Paradox. 

Collaborations

I am an external member of the research project Foundations and Methods of Natural Language Semantics (2017-2019) funded by the Spanish government, based at LOGOS-University of Barcelona, and led by Max Kölbel.

Research Grants

I am the Principal Investigor of the Leverhulme International Network Grant "What's So Special about First-Person Thought?" running from September 2016 to September 2019.

Teaching

Teaching Responsibilities

I teach the Level 1 course Controversial Questions with Paula Sweeney and Federico Luzzi, the Level 2 course Mind in a Physical World with Gerry Hough, and the Level 3 / Level 4 courses Free Will and Moral Responsibility and The Metaphysics of Possibility.

Before coming to Aberdeen I taught a number of courses at Oriel College—Oxford, Smith College, Amherst College and University of Massachusetts-Amherst.
