PhD, Philosophy, Lecturer
Department of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies, Umeå University



I am a lecturer in philosophy at Umeå University. I have previously been a postdoctoral research fellow at the Centre for the Study of Mind in Nature at the University of Oslo and the Arché Philosophical Research Centre at the University of St Andrews. I obtained my PhD in 2011 as a double-badge degree from the University of St Andrews and the University of Oslo under the supervision of Professor Herman Cappelen.

Most of my research to date has focused on issues concerning disagreement, but I am interested in a wide range of topics in philosophy of language, epistemology, philosophy of mind, metaethics, metaphysics, and philosophy of science.

If you have any questions or comments about my research, please see my CV or my contact details below.
