I work on the philosophy of mind and language and on metaethics. I'm a devotee of Ruth Millikan's teleological theory of content. My current research concerns rationality and the implications of semantic externalism for traditional views about what it means to be rational. I also work on the problem of semantic indeterminacy in teleological theories of content, where I try to relate that debate to broader themes in the philosophy of language.

I joined LOGOS as a visiting postdoc in september 2022 and will remain here until August 2024. My stay in Barcelona is financed by an International postdoc grant from the Swedish Research Council.
