My research focuses on the question of what is there. What does reality consist of? How can we best conceptualize that? And how are we to understand our own place in that reality, as beings who are endlessly fascinated by what their world consists of?

In light of the above, I am concerned with metaphysical questions about, for example, space, time, matter, causality, reduction, and of course things themselves.

In addition to this work on reality as such, I also work on more anthropological philosophical questions about how people maintain a sense of reality 'for themselves', for example through the stories they tell, the objects they make, and the identities they construct.

I mainly work from the continental tradition in philosophy.
