Areas of Research
Metaphysics, Epistemology, Philosophy of Mathematics, Metaethics.
My work concerns metaphysical and epistemological problems surrounding traditionally a priori domains such as logic, mathematics, modality, and morality. Current interests include:
- Debunking arguments, the Benacerraf-Field challenge, and their relationship
- The determinacy and significance of metaphysical possibility and related notions
- The metaphysical and epistemological significance of disagreement
- Normative epistemology on the model of the epistemology of pure mathematics
- Logic and the foundations of mathematics
