Research Interests

I have broad research interests in ethics, epistemology, philosophy of mind, metaphysics and the history of philosophy. This is all tied together by an ongoing fascination with the nature of norms and values. How could they exist in the world? How could we know about them? Must they depend on our desires or emotions? I approach these questions by drawing on up-to-date scientific research and by using traditional philosophical methods of logic and analysis. I also have interests in animal ethics, ancient philosophy and the philosophy of David Hume.
