I am a logician and philosopher of mathematics, based at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy.

My research is in logic and the philosophy of mathematics. My current project uses tools and results from reverse mathematics, a subfield of mathematical logic, to determine the strength of the axioms that are necessary for arguments in different areas of philosophy, such as epistemology, philosophy of language, and metaphysics.

Before coming to Munich, I was attached to a project on set-theoretic pluralism at the University of Aberdeen and the University of Bristol, working with Toby Meadows and Philip Welch.
