Dan Marshall primarily works in metaphysics and in related areas in logic, the philosophy of language, and philosophy of science. Topics he is currently working on include the metaphysics of possible worlds and time, counterpart theory, and the theory of intrinsic properties. Dan did an undergraduate degree majoring in mathematics and philosophy at the University of Melbourne, before completing a masters degree in mathematics, also at the University of Melbourne. He then started a PhD in philosophy at the Australian National University, which he had to suspend in 2002 due to serious illness. After a lengthy recovery process, Dan resumed his PhD in 2007 and graduated in 2011. In September 2010 he took up a two year position as a research scholar in the School of Humanities at the University of Hong Kong, and he is now a visiting assistant professor in the philosophy department at the University of Hong Kong.
