Personal profile

Research overview

I primarily work on late 19th and early 20th-century philosophy (Bergson, Broad, Eddington, McTaggart, Oakeley, Sinclair, Stebbing) in France and Britain. My current project is investigating the ways through which "psychical research" (i.e., the study of paranormal phenomena like telepathy, clairvoyance, or ghosts) influenced views about religion, time, causality, and free will in early 20th-century British philosophy.

I completed my MA at the University of Aberdeen and my MPhil and PhD at the University of Cambridge. I also spent a year working on Bergson at the École normale supérieure in Paris. Prior to coming to St Andrews, I was postdoctoral research associate at Durham University and lecturer at Queen's University Belfast. I am originally from the Czech Republic.
