CV and Research

My research focuses on issues in the philosophy of social science, epistemology, philosophy of mind, and their intersection. I investigate various complementary dimensions of epistemic value in the context of social scientific research: what makes a person a good researcher, a group of people a good scientific collective, an epistemic system a good scientific community, a research procedure a good empirical study, and how all these different dimensions come together for epistemically successful social science. I research in particular on how the social nature of scientific inquiry can best be utilized to the advancement of scientific knowledge in the domain of quantitative social sciences.
