Contact details

I am a philosopher based in Tarndanya (Kaurna land) at the University of Adelaide. From 2022, I am the editor of the Australasian Journal of Philosophy.

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, as well as philosophy of religion. I have have research and teaching interests in philosophy of economics, and I am program coordinator for the Bachelor of Philosophy, Politics and 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 the University of 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.

Acceptable pronouns for me are they/their/etc. or he/his/etc..
