Person

I am Associate Professor of Theoretical Philosophy (i.e. Reader/Docent) and Director of Doctoral Studies at the Department of Philosophy.

I was awarded my PhD in December 2009. The dissertation (a compilation thesis) was about how physical, macroscopic objects persist through time, given B-time. I defended the endurance theory and pointed out new problems for the perdurance theory and the stage theory.

Over the last years my research has focused primarily on social ontology. Autumn 2011 I was granted funding by the Swedish Research Council (VR) for my project "Social Ontology and Theories of Persistence", and autumn 2015 I was granted funding by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (RJ) for my project "Causation in the Social Domain".

Normally, I teach on various courses (Level 2-4) in theoretical philosophy, but during 2017 I am on research leave. In May 2017, I am a visiting researcher at the Institute of Philosophy at the University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland.
