how I say my name

ABOUT    RESEARCH    TEACHING    ICELANDIC

I am a Lecturer/Assistant Professor and Ad Astra Fellow at University College Dublin, School of Philosophy. I am also the Principal Investigator of two research projects funded by the The Icelandic Research Fund, The Confused Intentions Project and Insincerity for Fragmented Minds, both based at UCD and University of Iceland, where I have a part-time position as a Research Scientist. 

I did my PhD at the CUNY Graduate Center in New York City and I work on philosophy of language and mind.

My last name is a patronym, so, it’s not really a name. But we can pretend.
