I'm Professor of Philosophy at the University of Nottingham, where I'm the Head of the School of the Humanities and Director of Regulation and Compliance for the University of Nottingham Online. Previously, I've acted as Chair of the University's Quality and Standards Committee, and Site Director for the Midlands 4 CitiesDoctoral Training Partnership. I'm also an external member of the Graduate School at the University of Milan. From 2013-2016 I was Head of the Department of Philosophy.

I enjoy collaborating and am currently involved in projects with colleagues based in Australia, Canada, Spain, the UK and the USA. Get in touch if you're interested in working with me.


I work mostly in metaphysics, with a focus in the philosophy of time. I also dabble a little in the philosophy of mathematics and the philosophy of science.
