Picture of LigginsIn 2005, I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Sheffield, where my supervisors were Rosanna Keefe and Chris Hookway. Supported by an award from the Analysis Trust, I spent the 2005-6 academic year at the Faculty of Philosophy at Cambridge, continuing my research. I became a Lecturer at Manchester in 2006, and a Senior Lecturer in 2010.

Since 2009 I have been an Associate Editor of the Australasian Journal of Philosophy.

I spent the 2009-10 academic year on research leave, thanks to an AHRC Research Leave award.

From November 2011 to October 2014, Chris Daly and I directed a research project entitled The Foundations of Ontology, funded by the AHRC.
