Contact details


I am a philosopher on Kaurna land at the University of Adelaide. I am program coordinator for the Bachelor of Philosophy, Politics and Economics. From 2014–21 I served on the Board of the Australasian Association of Philosophy in various capacities, but mostly as Treasurer.

My research is mainly in ‘theoretical’ philosophy: metaphysics, epistemology and philosophy of science, philosophy of logic and language, philosophy of probability, and philosophy of physics. I teach in all these areas, and their early modern history (where I have special fondness for Descartes, Cavendish, and Hume); I also regularly teach philosophy of religion and philosophy of economics. I also have interests in feminist epistemology and philosophy of science, and am a member of the Fay Gale Centre for Research on Gender. I also supervise research students in these areas, and have been lucky to be involved with some very talented students. Prospective students please see here for more information.

I am grateful to have been awarded grants to support my research from the ARC, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, the AHRC, and the Whiting Foundation. I am currently chief investigator on an ARC Discovery Project entitled Everything in its Place on persistence and location.

Before coming to Adelaide, I was from 2004–2013 Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Oxford, and William Kneale Fellow and Tutor in Philosophy at Exeter College, Oxford. Before that, I did my PhD at Princeton, and in the distant past I was an undergraduate at Melbourne.

With Lizzie Maughan I also parent all of the world’s Eagle-Maughans.
