Much of my research is in traditional and social epistemology, particularly where these areas connect with questions about psychology, ethics, law, and politics.
For the past few years I have been looking at the mental states, norms, and goals associated with inquiry in different settings—within individuals, in the courtroom, at the ballot-box, and within academic groups.
Lately, I’ve been researching responsibility, blame, and punishment — particularly the epistemology of responsibility-attributions, and how we hold people responsible differently in different contexts (e.g. legally v socially).
