Research interests

Specific research interests:

Keywords: philosophy of language, metaphysics, philosophical logic, philosophy of science.

Current research projects:

My current project is in metaphysics and philosophy of language. The metaphysics component concerns issues about reduction and identity. My paper 'The Methodology of Genuine Modal Realism' gives a flavour of this component. The philosophy of language component concerns issues about reference and indeterminacy. My paper 'Acquaintance and De Re Thought’ gives a flavour of this second component.

Another project includes fictionalism, including its contested coherence and its most promising applications.
