Research interests

My main  main research interest in recent years has been in the foundations of logic and mathematics. I recently published a monograph defending formalism in the philosophy of mathematics- Truth through Proof- a formalist foundation for mathematics, (OUP, 2010). I am currently working on a book on physicalism, and its limits.
