Research Interests

My main interests lie in epistemology and the philosophy of religion, particularly at the intersection of the two, and I am currently working on projects on evolutionary debunking arguments against moral realism, epistemological issues arising from the facts of religious diversity, the problem of evil, and the generality problem for reliabilist theories of epistemic justification.
