Me:
I'm an Associate Professor of Philosophy at Underwood International College (UIC), Yonsei University. Every now and then I visit the Northern Institute of Philosophy at the University of Aberdeen where I'm an Associate Fellow.

Pluralisms network:
From 2013 to 2016 I will run a Global Research Network funded by the National Research Foundation of Korea. The network is named "Pluralisms" and aims to investigate alethic, logical, and ontological pluralism. These three forms of pluralism will be investigated on their own, but it will likewise be investigated what, if any, connections they might bear to one another.

Research areas:
My main research areas are epistemology, truth, and philosophical logic. I used to do a fair bit of philosophy of mathematics, but I spend less time on it now. Much of my recent and current work focuses on pluralism about truth, logic, or ontology (sometimes in combination). I also like to think about epistemic entitlement and epistemic consequentialism. Additionally, I have done some work on the epistemology of absence-based inference, open-ended schemas, and neo-Fregeanism in the philosophy of mathematics.

Past:
Prior to coming to Korea, I did a Ph.D. at the Arché Centre, University of St. Andrews and then held two research fellowships—the first at UCLA, the second at University of Copenhagen. I'm a founding member of the Southern California Epistemology Network (which I ran 2006-2010) and the Social Epistemology Research Group (SERG) at the University of Copenhagen.
