I am really honoured and excited to have the opportunity to develop my academic writing through an association in the form of an honorary fellow status I have been given in the department of philosophy at Durham University. This really is an excellent opportunity and I am really looking forward to using the chances of collaboration that this provides. I hope this association will enable me to develop my work on declarative mapping sentences as ontological representations and mereologies. This work will feed into a book I am writing which will be published later in the year or early 2020. The book is about mapping sentences in a general theoretical sense. I am very Grateful to Professor Anna Marmodoro, the E.J. Lowe Chair of Metaphysics at Durham University for facilitating this affiliation.
