I have broad philosophical interests, but much of my work concerns where epistemology connects to questions about ethics, law, and politics.
A common theme of this work is looking at the aims and norms of inquiry in different contexts—individuals asking questions, courts evaluating evidence, voters deciding via the ballot-box, and academic groups making new discoveries.
