Danny Wardle

MPhil Candidate

University of Adelaide

I am currently a Master of Philosophy candidate at the University of Adelaide. Before that, I completed a Bachelor of Arts (Advanced) at the same university.

Currently, I am an Ordinary Member of the Australasian Association of Philosophy (AAP) Postgraduate Committee. In 2020, I was the Convenor.

My current research focuses primarily on the metaphysics of persistence. This includes some areas that intersect with the metaphysics of persistence, such as philosophy of language and philosophy of physics.

Outside of philosophy, I enjoy scuba diving down at Port Noarlunga and Rapid Bay.
