I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Bristol, where I work as a member of the Set Theoretic Pluralism project. I was previously a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Aberdeen, and before that I was a graduate student at the University of Bristol, where I received my PhD in 2015.
My research is in logic and the philosophy of mathematics. Topics I'm currently working on include reverse mathematics, mathematical knowledge, the foundations of real analysis, infinitary logic, and the relationship between multiverse views in set theory and the reception of non-Euclidean geometry.
