I work primarily on Medieval philosophy and have written on medieval logic, metaphysics, philosophical psychology, natural philosophy as well as ethics. I have also published on sixteenth century philosophy and some early modern philosophers like Suarez, Descartes and Leibniz. I have furthermore done work on Aristotle and the Stoics. I am at the moment writing two books; one on Intentionality and Skepticism in Medieval and Early Modern Aristotelianism and another book on the History of Scandinavian philosophy.

I am happy to supervise MA papers or PhD theses on any aspect of Medieval Philosophy, as well as on Aristotle (particularly logic, metaphysics and psychology), the Stoics and on Suarez, Descartes and Leibniz.
