Samuel Kimpton-NyeTeaching Fellow in Philosophy

Address Room 702 Philosophy Department
King’s College London
London WC2R 2LS




I studied philosophy as an undergraduate at Birkbeck, University of London. I then completed an MPhilStud and a PhD at King’s College London. 

Research interests and PhD supervision
  • Metaphysics
  • Philosophy of Science

My research focuses on issues at the intersection of metaphysics and the philosophy of science. In particular, I am interested in the metaphysics of properties, modality and the laws of nature and the relationship between metaphysical and scientific inquiry.
