I’m from Denbigh, North Wales. I studied philosophy as an undergraduate at Liverpool University (93-96), and did my MPhil and PhD at King’s College London (96-98 and 02-06).

I held temporary lectureships at KCL and Sheffield, and postdocs at the Institute of Philosophy, KCL, and Oxford, before arriving at beautiful Lisbon, where I am an FCT Researcher. I specialise in Metaphysics, Philosophy of Science and Philosophy of Mind, with a lot of teaching experience in all of them. I publish primarily on powers, causation, emergence, realization and related topics at the intersection of metaphysics and the philosophies of science and mind.
