Further Information

Ben completed his PhD in Philosophy under the supervision of Richard Pettigrew at the University of Bristol (where he also obtained his MA) in late 2015. He also spent 6 months as a visiting research student in the department of mathematical logic at the University of Kobe, Japan, in 2013.

Research Interests

Ben has major research interests in the foundations of physics (especially quantum theory and cosmology), as well as the general philosophy of science, logic and formal epistemology. He is currently working on the 'Reasoning and Argumentation in Science’ research project at the LMU’s Center for Advanced Studies.
