I am a postdoctoral research fellow at Umeå University.

My primary research interests are metaphysics, philosophy of mind, philosophy of logic, and philosophy of language.

My PhD thesis (available here), is about intentionality and the phenomenon of intentional identity.

I like collaborating very much. I am currently working on a number of papers on a variety of topics: one on counterfactuals and their relationship to science with Katie Steele (ANU), one on causal decision theory with Tim Williamson (ANU), one on metaethics with Christopher Bottomley (ANU), one on semantics and plenitude with Maegan Fairchild (UMich), one on the semantics of ‘therefore’ with Bram Vaassen (Umeå), and one on intentionality with Peter Clutton (ANU).
