Areas of expertise My research interests are in logic (theories of truth and modality, paradox, conditionals, nonmonotonic reasoning, dynamic doxastic logic), epistemology (inference, belief revision, foundations of probability, Bayesianism), philosophy of mathematics (structuralism, informal provability), philosophy of language (indeterminacy of translation, compositionality), cognitive science (symbolic representation and neural networks, metacognition), philosophy of science (empirical content, measurement theory), and history of philosophy (Logical Positivism, Carnap, Quine). I am very much in favour of Formal Philosophy, i.e., the application of logical and mathematical methods in philosophy.
