Research

I'm an analytic philosopher, and have published on various aspects of fiction, imagination, and interpretation, and on definitions of art. I am interested generally in aesthetics.  

Recently I've done a bit of work on the nature of sexual objectification.

My current research project deals with questions in the philosophy of gender, biological sex, and sexual orientation.

I am particularly interested in supervising or co-supervising research students working in analytic philosophy in the following areas: fiction; the imagination; definitions of art; conceptual art; issues in Aesthetics generally; objectification; sexual orientation; sex and gender.
