Associate Professor of Philosophy, Durham University

I'm an Associate Professor of Philosophy at Durham, mostly working on space, time, and travel. I’m also interested in idealism, personal identity, the history of women in philosophy, and the philosophy of religion.

I'm the author of Absolute Time: Rifts in Early Modern British Metaphysics (2018) and The Meaning of Travel: Philosophers Abroad (2020).
