I am a Birmingham Fellow and Leverhulme Fellow in the Department of Philosophy at The University of Birmingham. I joined in September 2017.
I work in the philosophy of mind broadly construed, including the relevance of both cognitive science and metaphysics to questions concerning the mind.
I am currently researching several topics, but my main focus is on natural kinds within psychology.
I am also interested in the metaphysics of properties, the relevance of properties to work on the mind, and attention.
Previously, I was a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at the University of Cambridge. This was funded by The Leverhulme Trust and The Isaac Newton Trust.
For more details about my work, please see my Papers.
I received my PhD in 2015 from Durham University for a thesis on attention. This was supervised by Professor E. J. Lowe, Dr Peter Vickers and Dr Sophie Gibb. My examiners were Professor Ned Block and Dr Robin Hendry.
