Academic interests

I specialise in the philosophy of science and the philosophy of physics, and have interests in metaphysics and the philosophy of mathematics.

  • Scientific methodology;
  • Theory change;
  • Non-empirical guides to theory development;
  • Inter-theory relations in physics (including reduction, correspondence, and emergence);
  • Fundamentality;
  • Space and time;
  • Quantum gravity.

For more details, including links to publicly accessible versions of my publications, please see my website or my PhilPeople profile.
