My main research areas are epistemology, truth, metaphysics, and philosophy of logic. Much of my recent and current work focuses on pluralism about truth, logic, or ontology (sometimes in combination). I also like to think about non-evidential warrant, epistemic value, and epistemic consequentialism. Additionally, I have done some work on the epistemology of absence-based inference, open-ended schemas, and neo-Fregeanism in the philosophy of mathematics.
Prior to coming to Korea I did a Ph.D. at the Arché Research Centre, University of St. Andrews and then held two research fellowships—the first at UCLA, the second at University of Copenhagen. In addition to my Ph.D. I hold a BA and a cand.mag. from the University of Copenhagen and an M.Litt. from the University of St. Andrews. During my time at UCLA I founded the Southern California Epistemology Network, and at the University of Copenhagen I was a founding member of the Social Epistemology Research Group.
I like flat whites, blue sky, cooking pasta, and mixing cocktails.
