My PhD examined the programme of reverse mathematics from a philosophical point of view, with a particular eye towards its relevance for our understanding and evaluation of different foundations for mathematics. As well as continuing to develop this project, I’m now starting to study applications of reverse mathematics within philosophy, as a new tool for philosophers interested in the unexamined mathematical commitments of different philosophical views.
