Drawing by Hanna Sandgren

I am a postdoctoral research fellow at Umeå University.

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


Pär Sundström, Frank Jackson, and I have been awarded a 3.75 million SEK (about 350,000 Euros) grant from Vetenskapsrådet (the Swedish Research Council).

The project will run from January 2020 to December 2022 and is called ‘How are we able to think about things?’ More info here!
