I’m a postdoc at the University of Amsterdam, and a member of the ILLC. My research interests lie with topics in metaphysics, philosophy of mind, and the philosophy of physics.
I received a Veni grant for a project on the metaphysics of perspectival facts (2016-2020).
Before coming to Amsterdam, I was a postdoc at the University of Hamburg, and a member of Phlox. Before that, I was a PhD student at the University of St Andrews, and a member of Arché. I was lucky to have been supervised by Katherine Hawley and Aaron Cotnoir.
