I am a Ph.D. student in philosophy at Birkbeck College, University of London, supervised by Jennifer Hornsby and Keith Hossack. I'm interested in time, self-consciousness, thought and action—and in Kant, Frege, Wittgenstein and Anscombe. Previously, I took an M.Phil.Stud., also at Birkbeck, concentrating on ethics, metaphysics and Aristotle; 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.
