A Little About Me
I’m currently finishing a D.Phil. in the philosophy of time at St. Hilda’s College, Oxford, supervised by John Hawthorne and Cian Dorr. The title of my thesis is Permanents: In Defence of the Moving Spotlight Theory. Between Oct 2011 and Jan 2013 I worked as a Research Assistant to Timothy Williamson, helping him with his book Modal Logic as Metaphysics (OUP, 2013).
Before undertaking the D.Phil., I completed a B.Phil. in philosophy at Exeter College, Oxford (2008/09-2009/10). My B.Phil. thesis, which was awarded a Distinction, was supervised by John Hawthorne. Before that, I completed an M.A. in the philosophy of mind (supervised by Joel Walmsley) at University College Cork.
My primary area of research is the metaphysics of time, but I also have research interests in the philosophy of mind, the philosophy of language, the philosophy of religion, and other areas of metaphysics.
Here I am with my daughter Grace, lounging in the porch of the church from ‘Downton Abbey’ (actually the church of St. Mary the Virgin, Bampton, Oxon).
