I am a University Lecturer, and a Fellow of St John’s College, at the University of Cambridge.

I recently won a Philip Leverhulme Prize, and so I am on research leave until October 2017. I am currently writing a book with Sean Walsh, called Philosophy and Model Theory, and also a book on solipsism and the self in the period 1926–1969.

I published a book, The Limits of Realism, with OUP in 2013. It explores the relationship between words and world; between semantics and scepticism.

Beyond this, my main research interests lie in metaphysics, philosophy of mathematics, philosophical logic, philosophy of language, and metametaphysics.

Here’s a more detailed CV. I can be contacted by email at tecb2 at cam dot ac dot uk. You can also find me at academia.edu.
