Alex Franklin was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Bristol. Alex’s research with primarily concerns questions of inter-theoretic relations in the philosophy of physics. Through a series of case studies drawn from the physical sciences, Alex’s PhD thesis and published work defends the view that higher-level physical theories reduce to and emerge from fundamental physics.
Alex studied Physics and Philosophy as an undergraduate at the University of Oxford, and his MPhilStud and PhD degrees are from King’s, where he was supervised by Eleanor Knox. Alex also spent several months at the University of Pittsburgh as a Visiting Research Scholar. Before joining MetaScience, he worked as a Teaching Fellow at King’s, where he taught courses on the Philosophy of Physics, Philosophy of Science, and Philosophy of Race, and he has now re-joined the department as a lecturer.
