Welcome to my site!
I am a PhD student at Stanford University, focusing on the philosophy of science and applied epistemology.
My primary interests revolve around the question of how we should reason to make good inferences about reality.
At the University of Melbourne, I explored this question in an applied context by working on a project that aimed to develop software to assist intelligence analysts when they are reasoning about the variety of questions which they face. My role on the team was to execute an empirical study and to utilise statistical methods to assess the extent to which various forms of activity online are indicative of good reasoning. Unsurprisingly, this was closely tied to philosophical questions about what good reasoning really is and how it can be measured.
Aside from that, I have an abiding interest in probabilistic reasoning in real-world settings, and I also pursue research on other areas, such as reproducibility in the sciences and meta-ethics.
