I'm a postdoctoral fellow at the
Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy.

My research is about how quantum field theory interacts with traditional philosophical questions about representation, interpretation, and logic. QFT is a dazzling success as a theory of high-energy physics. But from a philosopher's point of view it can be puzzling. I argue that these puzzles are a consequence of some of our mistaken philosophical assumptions, and that correcting these mistakes can bring the real problems with QFT into better focus. Along the way I end up having things to say about the philosophical foundations of quantum gravity (black hole thermodynamics in particular), questions about space and time, topics in the metaphysics of science, and issues in the history of logic and mathematics.
