I'm a scientific realist and a mathematical instrumentalist with a fascination for figuring out what our best scientific theories imply about the nature of physical reality. As a logician my research primarily involves the investigation and development of probabilistic logics of evidential support, logics of belief and comparative plausibility, and logics for conditionals. Much of my work on probabilistic logic focuses on the development of a logical (non-subjectivist) version of Bayesian Confirmation Theory.
