My PhD project concerns mereology (the theory of parthood relations) and its relation to notions such as identity, ontological dependence or grounding, and ontological parsimony. I am especially interested in questions such as: Do wholes depend on their parts? Is a property of the whole grounded in a property (or properties) of its parts? Are mereological atoms (if these exist) more fundamental than the wholes they compose? Is a mereological sum nothing 'over and above' its parts?
