Dr. Ross Inman is a Templeton postdoctoral fellow at the University of Notre Dame, Center for Philosophy of Religion. He holds an M.A. in philosophy and an M.A. in theology from Biola University and has recently completed his Ph.D. in philosophy at Trinity College, Dublin. His dissertation is titled "Substantial Priority: An Essay in Fundamental Mereology" and broadly serves to explicate and defend a theory of the metaphysical fundamentality of substances. His research to date has focused primarily on themes in metaphysics such as mereology, powers, persistence, time, and truthmaking and has appeared in journals like Philosophical Studies, Metaphysica, Philosophia Christi as well as an edited volume dedicated to the intersection of Aristotelian-Scholastic metaphysics and contemporary analytic metaphysics. His current research at the Center for Philosophy of Religion focuses on a book manuscript on divine omnipresence. In addition to serving as a referee for Philosophia Christi, Ross has been an active member of the Evangelical Philosophical Society since 2007 where he has contributed to both regional and national conferences.
