Research

Logic, Decision Theory, Philosophy of Science.I work mainly in philosophy of science and decision theory, with particular attention to issues surrounding probability and confirmation. My current research relates to analogical reasoning (following up on my recent book, By Parallel Reasoning: The Construction and Evaluation of Analogical Arguments, Oxford University Press, 2010), the role of symmetry in probabilistic reasoning, and Pascal's Wager.
