Danny Wardle
PhD Candidate, Dianoia Institute of Philosophy

I am currently a PhD candidate at the Australian Catholic University’s Dianoia Institute of Philosophy in Melbourne. Previously, I completed a Master of Philosophy degree at the University of Adelaide. Before that, I completed a Bachelor of Arts (Advanced) at Adelaide.

I am an Ordinary Member of the Australasian Association of Philosophy Postgraduate Committee. In 2020, I was the Convenor of that committee.

I am interested in analytic metaphysics, broadly speaking. I am particularly interested in topics at the intersection of metaphysics, philosophy of language, social philosophy, and philosophy of physics.
