I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the Australian National University’s School of Philosophy.

In January 2019 I will start postdoc 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 co-authoring 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 logical impossibility with Koji Tanaka (ANU), two on intentionality with Peter Clutton (ANU), and two on the content of mental and lingusitic representation with Renee Jorgensen Bolinger (ANU).
