I specialize in metaphysics and ontology. I think about what there is, parts and wholes, composition, constitution, and modality. I am especially fond of exploring Lump Theory, the view that we (and other ordinary objects) are trans-world sums of spatial, temporal, and modal parts. I do not (yet) go so far as to claim that this view is true, but I certainly think it is worth our time trying to figure out why not.
I also work at the intersection of metaphysics and language – in particular, mental fictionalism, the view that we are (or should be) fictionalists about mental content.

Off-duty, I hang out with my partner and our two little boys, digging for worms and treasure.
