(Because the department is updating its web site, I'm still listed as a PhD student here, although I defended my thesis in 2020 and currently have a postdoc position.)

My research is mainly in causation in the context of the philosophy of science, and with a focus on the role of manipulation and intervention in theories of causation. I'm also interested in the logic of experimentation and causal learning. The title of my thesis is Taking Control -- The Role of Manipulation in Theories of Causation

My secondary interest is in the history of the philosophy of science, and mainly Francis Bacon and the early early modern period.
