Introduction My research covers a range of topics in epistemology, metaphysics and decision theory. Currently, I am investigating the foundations and applications of epistemic utility theory. Epistemic utility theorists explore the nature of epistemic value, and explain why various principles of rationality have the normative force that they do by elucidating the ways in which they are a good means to the end of epistemic value. My central focus at the moment is to extend epistemic utility theory to cover norms that to date have received little attention, e.g., norms governing comparative belief states, and imprecise credal states.
