simon-headshot-portrait-200-300I 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.

I’m also interested in the foundations of computation and the visualisation of knowledge (especially complex arguments, such as those found in philosophical debates).

I am currently pursuing a postdoc at the University of Innsbruck. I spent some time on the Agency and Quantum Physics project there, and I am now part of this project on the Nature of God. My research is currently focused on the nature of divine freedom, and the implications that has for how we conceive of God.
