A current project idea, suitable for PhB students:

In addition, I can supervise:

  • philosophy of statistics — at any level
  • applications of statistics, e.g. in medicine — probably at any level, depending on the details
  • philosophy of maths — at undergraduate level, including PhB
  • more general philosophy of science — at various levels, depending on the topic

There are really two different kinds of philosophy of maths:

  1. Philosophers pondering age-old questions like "What is a number?" I don't specialise in this, but I can supervise it.

  2. Philosophical (which really just means careful and general/abstract) examination of what mathematicians do, and the structures mathematicians come up with. This is what I like best. There have been some terrific ASCs of this sort — see PhB.
