In whatever little spare time I have, I like to spend time surfing, cooking, and baking breads.


I research questions concerning what the metaphysical implications of accepted scientific theories are. Do numbers exist because they are invaluable to science? Do objects exist because they feature in scientific theories? If two scientific theories are intertranslatable, but have different theoretical commitments, what should we think about what exists? I also research debunking arguments in metaethics and object metaphysics.
