I’m a Lecturer/Assistant Professor in Philosophy at University College Dublin, where I teach intro to logic, intro to ethics, epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of religion and philosophy of time. My research is primarily in philosophy of time and metaphysics of modality.

I received a BPhil in Philosophy from the University of Oxford in 2010, and a DPhil in Philosophy from the University of Oxford in 2014. My DPhil supervisors were Cian Dorr and John Hawthorne. My examiners were Timothy Williamson (Oxford) and Dean Zimmerman (Rutgers).
