I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Bristol, where I work as a member of the Set Theoretic Pluralism project. I was previously a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Aberdeen, and before that I was a graduate student at the University of Bristol, where I received my PhD in 2015.
My research is in logic and the philosophy of mathematics. Topics I'm currently working on include reverse mathematics, Dedekind's theory of the real numbers, and formal theories of truth.
