Background and activities
I am a PhD fellow in philosophy at the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies. I work on a project titled “The Prospects of Naturalized Metaphysics” where I investigate the role of science - physics in particular - in metaphysics, and attempt to assess to what degree metaphysics should be informed by and founded in science. As such, the project finds itself at the intersection of my two primary interests: Philosophy of science/physics and metaphysical methodology.
Aside from my PhD project, I am currently engaged in research in foundational issues in high energy physics, particularly on the nature of spacetime in the light of the AdS/CFT correspondence. I have also done more specialized work in the field of holographic gravity on the relationship between entanglement and spacetime.
