Research Interests

  • Philosophy of language: empty terms, negative existentials
  • Metaphysics: ontology of fictional entities, truthmakers for negative existentials
  • Philosophy of mind: mental representation, Imagination
  • Philosophical logic: Modal logic, non-classical logics, higher-order modal logics
  • Epistemology: belief revision, formal epistemology

Miscellaneous Interests

I'm hooked to Magic: The Gathering. Furthermore, I love all kinds of board games and pen and paper role playing games. Recently, I've discovered that I like hiking. In case I manage to motivate myself, I do weightlifting.
