My PhD thesis is an investigation into methodological naturalism and the testability of creationism. My supervisors are Greg Dawes and James Maclaurin. I also have particular interest in belief, belief reports and the work of Karl Popper. I have previously studied and taught at the University of Otago, the University of Auckland and the National University of Singapore.
