I work primarily at the intersection of philosophy and science, with a particular focus on issues that arise in physics. Most recently I have worked on questions of probability in primordial cosmology and on philosophical aspects of black hole physics. I have trained as both a philosopher and a physicist; and hold a PhD in philosophy from the University of Cambridge, and a PhD in theoretical physics from the University of California at Santa Barbara.
