My research primarily focuses on topics in epistemology, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of science relating to rational belief change and choice. Although I frequently use formal tools from logic and probability theory, my motivations are primarily philosophical. One such motivation is in understanding the norms governing the epistemic practices of real-world agents at the subjective, first-personal level. As such, my formal work often pursues ways of weakening the traditional approaches' often heavy-handed idealisations to give a more realistic representation of agents. A few of my current projects are described below.
