Academic interests

My research is primarily in the philosophy of maths, but frequently veers in to metaphysics, epistemology, and logic.

I’m particularly interested in new axioms for mathematics — what ones there are, why we want them, what counts as evidence for them — and the nature of the mathematical universe — whether it is inherently potential, whether there a single universe or many, whether there are collections other than sets.


    Before I came to Oslo, I did a PhD in philosophy at Birkbeck College, London (working as part of Øystein Linnebo’s Plurals, Predicates, and Paradox project). Before that, I did an MA at Sheffield and a BA at Oxford Brookes, also in philosophy.
