Supervision Statement

  • I'm able to supervise topics in general philosophy of science, especially ones relating to scientific realism, theory change, method, incommensurability, as well as topics relating to the work of Kuhn, Feyerabend, Lakatos or Popper. In epistemology and metaphysics, I would be interested in projects relating to metaphysical realism, scepticism about the external world, scepticism and relativism, naturalism, induction and natural kinds.
