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.



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

The project will span 2020-2022 and is called ‘How are we able to think about things?’

More details to come!
