Research Interests

I'm primarily interested in the philosophy of mathematics, logic, and epistemology, although I have wide additional interests in metaphysics, metaethics, normative ethics, and political philosophy. My current research project is focused mostly on truth, consistency, and coherence. I'm interested in making sense of pluralist views about mathematics, according to which (roughly) any consistent or coherent mathematical theory is true. For related reasons, I spend a lot of time thinking about theories of truth, formal and otherwise, and about the epistemology of consistency and coherence: how we might ever come to get justification or knowledge that our best theories have these properties (especially in light of limitative results like Gödel's incompleteness theorems.)
