I am a senior lecturer in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Birmingham, mainly researching metaphysics (including time travel, ontology and metaontology), philosophy of religion and some philosophy of science and mind. I teach metaphysics and philosophy of mind, but supervise postgraduate students in a wide variety of areas. I previously worked at the University of Leeds and the University of Glasgow.

In my spare time (indeed, many say all of the time) I'm an unmitigated geek, and play a wide variety of board games (and the like). I have tried not being a geek, but it never sat well with me. I also like walking, reading, listening to podcasts and have been known to partake of a beer every now and again.
