St. George,


I’m an MA student of philosophy at the University of Oslo, doing an exchange semester at U of T. My MA thesis is an investigation of positive arguments for the primitivist theory of truth.

I’m especially interested in philosophy of language and metaphysics – particularly in concepts, truth, and propositions – but I’m also interested in philosophy of mind, epistemology, bioethics, and animal ethics.

When I’m not doing philosophy, I’m reading science fiction, hiking, or cooking.

Research Interests:

Bioethics, Metaphysics, Philosophy of Language, Philosophy of Mind, Semantics and Pragmatics
