My research interests lay at the interstices of philosophy of science, game & decision theory, and (formal, social) epistemology. In particular, I use the formal tools of game & decision theory, dynamical systems, and network theory to explore a range of questions in the evolution of cooperation (esp. altruism), communication (esp. recursive structures in language), and complexity (esp. culture), and the ways in which we come to produce collective knowledge (esp. the replication crisis in social and life sciences).
I also have broader interests in middle-eastern philosophy (esp. Alhazen and Omar Khayyam), political philosophy (esp. Harsanyi and Sen), history of analytic philosophy (esp. Wittgenstein and de Finetti), empiricism (esp. D. Hume and T. Reid), and American pragmatism (esp. C. S. Peirce and W. James).
Below are several of my articles. Feel free to peruse some computational models that typically accompany this research (the open source code for which can be found at my GitHub page) as well as visualizations I’ve created for myself and others on related topics.
