Research

I am the Principal Investigator in a research project funded by the Leverhulme Trust, which started in August 2017 and continues until July 2021, on Theories of Paradox in Fourteenth-Century Logic: Edition and Translation of Key Texts. My interests extend from medieval theories in the philosophy of logic, language and mind, to the more modern concerns of relevance logic and the philosophy of logic.
