Areas of interest
I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in philosophy at Oxford. I write mostly in epistemology and some allied areas in philosophy of language (lately, on assertion, defeat, probability and evidence, fallibilism, pragmatic encroachment, contextualism, testimony, etc.), and also in early modern (particularly Descartes) and philosophy of religion (epistemology of religion broadly construed, and the problem of evil).
