I am an Associate Researcher at Worcester College, Oxford. From 2015 to 2019 I was the David Mitchell Fellow and Tutor in Philosophy, also at Worcester College, and before that a Lecturer and Junior Research Fellow. I received my BA (2006) and MPhil (2008) from Birkbeck College, University of London, and my PhD from the University of Cambridge (2012).
I have wide range of philosophical interests, including early analytic philosophy, truth and meaning, the philosophy of mathematics and the philosophy of logic. In all of my work, I try to philosophise in what, as I understand it, Frank Ramsey meant by 'the Realistic Spirit'. That means, in short, holding to the idea that a good explanation of a particular phenomenon is one that respects the facts of the kinds of beings that we are: finite, fallible and wholly earthbound, yet extraordinarily functional, and with mental lives no less rich than the world in which we find ourselves.
