Personal Information

I am a senior lecturer in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Bristol. I am also an external member of the  Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (LMU Munch).

For the academic year 2018/19 I will be an academic visitor at the Eidyn research centre at the University of Edinburgh.

My research is principally within the philosophy of physics, with a particular emphasis on time and symmetry in classical and quantum theories of gravity. I am also interested in various issues in general philosophy of science and the philosophy of the social sciences.

If you would like to know more about my research please refer to the Papers, Books, or Videos pages. Information about my AHRC funded research project 'Analogue Simulation in Modern Physics' can be found here.
