Supervision Interests

I am interested in working with research candidates on many topics in metaphysics, philosophy of probability, the philosophy of logic and language, epistemology/philosophy of science and philosophy of physics. Students who work with me should expect to produce writing for discussion no less than monthly, and are required to attend (and occasionally present to) a regular ‘lab meeting’ along with my other supervisees.

My CV contains details of candidates I’ve supervised, as principal or co-supervisor. I include titles, which indicate some of the research areas I’m comfortable supervising, but by no means all.

Information for Prospective Students

The Department of Philosophy at Adelaide is small but high quality, with an active graduate program, offering both a research masters (MPhil) and a PhD. We also offer a rigorous honours program. If you are interested in pursuing a research degree here, I would be glad to discuss our programs and possible thesis topics with you.

Information about the application process can be obtained from the link above and the Adelaide Graduate Research School, but I’m happy to give informal advice to candidates wishing to work with me. One crucial thing to note is that an applicant needs to have a research proposal before applying, even applicants for the MPhil. The University provides a useful template, and I expect all applicants who wish to work with me to prepare a research proposal in this format as part of the application process. I am happy to assist appropriately qualified prospective candidates with this part of the process.
