Before coming to Aberdeen, I studied at University College Dublin, the University of St. Andrews, and the University of Sheffield. My PhD thesis focused on the work of W.V. Quine in the philosophy of language.
My main research interests are in the philosophy of language and the history of Analytic Philosophy.
Philosophy of Language (especially theories of reference and the semantics of belief reports)
History of Analytic Philosophy (especially the work of W.V. Quine)
I am teaching PH201B "What We Are: Mind in a Physical World" and PH305H/PH405H "Theories of Meaning" in the academic year 2018 - 19. You will find details of these courses on MyAberdeen.
