Personal profile

Research interests

I specialize in contemporary analytic metaphysics, with an emphasis on methodological and epistemic issues: 'meta-metaphysics'. I also work at the interface of metaphysics and philosophy of science: 'metaphysics of science'. Broader research interests include issues in epistemology, philosophical logic, philosophy of science, philosophy of mind, and history of philosophy. I am the PI of an ERC Consolidator Project "The Metaphysical Unity of Science" (MetaScience, 2018-2023).
