Research interests

My research interests span several areas of metaphysics and epistemology with a particular focus on time travel, foreknowledge and causal loops. I am a Research Associate on the Swiss National Science Foundation funded project “Being Without Foundations”, having previously worked as a lecturer here and at Cardiff University. 

Part of my work is located at the intersection of philosophy and pop culture, fostering a bi-directional exchange between academics and the consumers and creators of speculative fiction across different media. To this end I run the Epicurean Cure

Supervision

I am willing to supervise projects relating to my research interests. I am also very open to interdisciplinary supervision e.g. on tropes in popular culture, science fiction and/or video games.
