About

I am a lecturer (assistant professor) at UCL Philosophy Department. Before joining UCL, I was a visiting assistant professor at Columbia University (Barnard) and a graduate student at Oxford University.

I work mainly in ancient and contemporary metaphysics and have strong interests in topics in philosophy of mind, medieval philosophy, philosophy of language, and social philosophy.

I’m currently thinking a lot about how Aristotle connects causation and necessity (a book project), what ordinary language teaches us about causation, and what kind of properties dispositions are.

Occasionally, I write for non-academic venues, such as Fortune, Times Higher Education, and OpenDemocracy. Mostly about politics.
