I'm a New Zealand philosopher, presently a Senior Lecturer at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch. My main areas of work at the moment are the philosophy of mind (consciousness and intentionality) , metaphysics (I'm working on a weird and wonderful new version of modal realism), epistemology (in particular, the problem of induction), and philosophical logic ( analyticity, apriority and necessity). I've got a side-line in the philosophy of de-extinction, where the main questions are: (i) should we resurrect extinct species?; and (ii) if we resurrect them, then will the new organisms be authentic members of the original species?
