About

website pic2I am a philosopher of science and of physics. Right now, I’m a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Cambridge, an Associate Member of the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Oxford and a Heinrich Hertz Visiting Fellow (‘visiting’, of course, in scare quotes during the Covid-19 lockdown) at the University of Bonn. Here is a recent CV.

I currently work primarily on the foundations of general relativity and supersymmetry. I am also interested in issues related to the foundations of quantum field theory and string theory. My research in the philosophy of science is on the nature of confirmation of scientific theories.
