Suggested Topics For Research Students

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

There are really two different kinds of philosophy of maths:

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

Philosophical (which really just means careful) 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.
