Background

I joined the department in September 2013 as a Chancellor's Fellow. Prior to that, I was a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Barcelona and a member of the LOGOS Research Network. I completed a PhD at the University of Texas at Austin, where I was supervised by Mark Sainsbury. My philosophical interests are very broad, but my main areas of research are metaphysics, the philosophy of language, and the history of analytic philosophy.
