David Mathers

I received a doctorate in philosophy from the University of Oxford in 2016 for a thesis in the philosophy of mind, specifically on the metaphysics of perceptual consciousness. My doctoral supervisor was Prof. John Hawthorne. Since receiving my DPhil I have been a teaching assistant at the University of Stirling and have had two academics papers accepted for publication. Copies of my papers and doctoral thesis can be found at https://oxford.academia.edu/DavidMathers
