I am currently particularly interested in supervising projects in the following two areas:
The nature of representation: the metaphysics, epistemology and explanatory role of mental and linguistic content.
Living in a non-classical world: epistemology and practical reasoning interacting with indeterminacy and nonclassical logic.
But I'm also willing to supervise in any of my areas of research interest. Please do drop me a line if you want to discuss potential PhD projects, for example in:
Conditionals: the logic, semantics and pragmatics of indicative and counterfactual conditionals.
Indeterminacy and vagueness.
Philosophy of mathematics
Probability: subjective and objective.
Logic: classical and non-classical; metaphysics, epistemology and normativity.
Ontological commitment: the relation between metaphysics and language.
Metasemantics: the foundations of reference and representation.
