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. I'm also working on some results relating
axiomatic theories of truth to hyperarithmetical analysis, and the role
of reverse mathematics in foundations of mathematics.

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.
