Projects per year
I have a wide range of interests, having published on topics that include rational choice theory (e.g. 1, 2), moral and political theory (3, 4), as well as metaphysics and philosophy of physics (5, 6). More publications and works in progress are available on my personal webpage.
My current projects are focused on understanding social norms (their nature, the processes by which they change, the way they interact with rational choice). I am particularly interested in using formal techniques (game theory, evolutionary theory, rational choice) and in engaging with disciplines outside of philosophy to illuminate these issues.
