Areas of specialization
Areas of interest
Born in Jersey (Channel Islands not the USA!); an avid golf, cricket and Birmingham city fan; lived in Nottingham and have been associated with Nottingham University since 2002. My interests largely lie in the realm of causation, laws, and how our concept of causation relates to laws of nature. However I have also worked on the philosophy of time, philosophy of science, and the philosophy of sex.
