Research

My research mostly concerns issues of ontology and representation in physics. My doctoral thesis looks at how the symmetries of a theory may serve as a guide to its physical content: it argues that we can best understand symmetries by recognising them as a means of translating a theory into itself. I’m also interested in structuralism in mathematics and science; the history of physics, logic and mathematics in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries; and in various other topics at the intersection of physics, logic, and metaphysics.
