About

I am a Ph.D. student in philosophy at Birkbeck College, University of London, supervised by Jennifer Hornsby and Keith Hossack. My work is concerned with time, self-consciousness, thought and action—with the ways these together form human being, with subjectivity and with the being of ‘points of view’. I'm also interested in how Kant, Frege, Wittgenstein and Anscombe thought about these themes. Previously, I took an M.Phil.Stud., also at Birkbeck, concentrating on metaphysics, Aristotle and ethics; I wrote a thesis on the metaphysics of stuff (that to which mass-terms refer).

While taking the M.Phil.Stud., I was a research associate in artificial intelligence in the Computing department at Imperial College London; my research was on argumentation, logics of action, deontic logic and policy analysis. I have a Ph.D. in logic and A.I., and an M.Sc. in the mathematical foundations of computer science, from the same place.

Before that, I did my undergraduate degree in philosophy at King's College, Cambridge.
