Research Supervised

I am chief supervisor for PhD students: Ben Young and Trudi Webber, for MSocSc student: Tony Cartner, for honours student: Maxwell Rodley, and co-supervisor with Justine Kingsbury for PhD student: Furkan Yazici.

At this time I am not actively recruiting PhD and Masters students. However, if you have an interest in the nature and value of facts, truth, and action, or an interest in the social and political challenges of the philosophy of language, please feel free to email me a brief (200-word) description of your project. I'd be happy to look at it and consider you for future postgraduate study.

Research Interests

My research focus is the nature and value of truth, the problem of action individuation, self-narratives, and practical challenges that arise from these theoretical areas. My approach to these matters is pluralistic, employing both traditional philosophical methods and empirical methods.
