Areas of Interest: Ancient and Medieval Philosophy; Epistemology; Metaphysics

Before joining the faculty of philosophy here in Groningen (in 2015) I was a research fellow in philosophy at the University of Oxford and before that I completed my PhD at the University of Cambridge.

My historical research is broad both chronologically and thematically, but focuses on ancient and medieval philosophy. To date, I have published on Plato, Aristotle, the Stoics, and Augustine.

My systematic interests are focused on (analytic) metaphysics and epistemology. I am especially interested in questions at the intersections of these areas and value theory and the philosophy of action.

I am interested in supervising students working in these areas. Please contact me if you are a prospective student and have any queries.

On my personal site you can find more materials related to my teaching and research.

Some recent publications:

‘Aristotelian Finitism’Synthese (2015) [PDF proof]

‘Augustine on the Varieties of Understanding and Why There is No Learning from Words’, Oxford Studies in Medieval Philosophy (2015) [PDF proof]

‘The Stoic Account of Apprehension’, Philosophers’ Imprint (2014) [open access]

‘Knowledge and True Belief at Theaetetus 201a-c’, British Journal for the History of Philosophy (2013)  [PDF offprint]  (commended in the 2013 BSHP Essay Prize Competition)


From 2017, I will be working on a NWO Veni project focusing on relativism about truth and morality in ancient philosophy.
