Contact details


I am a philosopher based in Tarndanya (Kaurna land) at the University of Adelaide, where I am also Associate Head of the School of Humanities for Learning and Teaching. I am editor-in-chief of the Australasian Journal of Philosophy and founding editor of the Gavin David Young Lectures in 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 (with a particular fondness for Hume and Cavendish), as well as philosophy of religion. I have research and teaching interests in decision theory and philosophy of economics, and I was founding program director of 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 work with MPhil and PhD candidates in these areas, and have been privileged to supervise some very talented people. Prospective applicants 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 (2020–24) chief investigator on an ARC Discovery Project entitled Everything in its Place on persistence and location.

Before returning to Australia, I taught in the Faculty of Philosophy at Oxford from 2004–2013, where I was also a fellow of Exeter College. Prior to that I did my PhD at Princeton, and I was an undergraduate at Melbourne.

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

My pronouns are they/their/etc. or he/his/etc..
