I am Associate Professor of Theoretical Philosophy 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".
I have been a visiting researcher at the following institutions:
Centre for Time, University of Sydney, Australia, July-December 2006;
Institute of Philosophy, University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland, May 2017;
Center for Philosophy of Science, University of Pittsburgh, USA, April 2018.
