Simon KittleI am a researcher in philosophy and (mostly former) software engineer from the UK. I completed a PhD in philosophy at the University of Sheffield in 2015. My area was free will and I focused on the modal nature of the abilities relevant to the exercise of agential control. Some of this research is available on the writing page. Alongside free will, I am interested in the philosophy of religion and metaphysics.

Prior to pursuing a PhD I worked as a software engineer for a number of years, working mainly with C# and Javascript. I’m interested in the foundations of computation and the visualisation of knowledge (especially complex arguments, such as those found in philosophical debates), and I occasionally contribute to a number of open source software projects.
